Wisconsin man dies from exposure as cold moves in test

Posted:

HAYWARD, Wis. (AP) - Severe cold blamed for a death in northern Wisconsin is only expected to get more frigid, producing wind chills down to 40 or 50 below zero in the far north, before a warmup starts this weekend.

It won't be a great deal better in southern Wisconsin. The National Weather Service said the daytime high in Milwaukee on Thursday could be minus 1 with wind chills between minus 20 and minus 30.

Flesh can freeze in 10 minutes when the wind chill is 40 below or colder, the weather service noted.

The cold claimed a victim in Sawyer County, where a 51-year-old sleepwalker died from exposure after wandering from his rural Hayward home early Tuesday.

Chief Deputy Tim Zeigle of the Sawyer County Sheriff's Department said the man was found about 190 yards from his house. His son, who reported him missing late Tuesday morning, said the man was prone to sleepwalking.

Deputies followed tracks of his bare feet in the snow to find him.

"He had been in bed and walked outside. He had on very few clothes," said Zeigle, who declined to release the man's name until relatives had been notified.
