May's heat wave claims life of third victim

Heat stroke claimed the life of an unidentified 48-year-old Baltimore man during last month's heat wave, according to the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

It was the third heat-related death in the state this year, all from early May. In each case, heat was a factor contributing to other health problems, including substance abuse.

Officials encourage people to follow simple suggestions to avoid heat-related problems: Drink plenty of liquids, particularly water, to prevent dehydration; avoid alcohol; wear loose-fitting, light-colored, lightweight clothing; stay in the shade or wear sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen; and frequently check on the elderly and young children.
