    Maybe , just maybe he was shoveling to fast and hard and the heart could not handel it. If a person is not in the best of shape, shoveling heavy snow to hard can kill a person. It has happened before.

      I cannot believe the comment from "ISLANDER" nor "The Guardian" for publishing it. For heavens sake, a gentleman died and others are griefstriken. Who said he was even shoveling? My thoughts are with his family and friends in this tragic loss. May he rest in peace.
