Arlington Heights police reported that the man that was transported from the scene was 58 years-old and that he was unfortunately deceased. Arlington Heights police said that unfortunately the individual was not revived and was pronounced dead at 10:00 a.m. by a Northwest Community Hospital Emergency Department physician. Police initially withheld the man’s name. The office of the Cook County Medical Examiner is expected to make a ruling on the cause of death. Initially it was unknown whether the death was connected to cold exposure. The air temperature was 10-11°F about midnight Friday/Saturday and temperature readings climbed during the early morning hours. The air temperature at the time of the incident was climbing from about 26°F to 30°F.
The man was found at the foot of a snow bank near some plowing equipment — closer to Marshalls than Jewel-Osco. Police did not believe he was connected with the plowing business, and police said that a preliminary investigation determined there was no overt sign of criminal activity and no foul play was suspected initially.
Police cleared the scene soon after firefighter/paramedics left the scene.
