ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) – Police in St. Cloud say a 55-year-old man died of a heart attack after collapsing while he was snow-blowing his driveway.

Police and emergency responders arrived at Douglas Munneke’s house at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday. He had stopped snow-blowing about halfway through the job and entered his home, where he asked for help and then collapsed. Efforts to resuscitate him failed.

Police say Munneke had a history of heart problems.
