A man found his grandfather dead in the snow early Thursday morning, according to police.

The 73-year-old man was a hospice patient with multiple medical issues. Family members said they saw him alive around 2 a.m., but later awoke to find the door open and the man lying in the snow.

A family member attempted CPR, but the man couldn’t be revived.

Overnight temperatures and wind chills were at a dangerous level. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
