Lately now there has been 3 Deaths in my State from people Freezing to Death! Isn't that Sad & Scarey? Any in your State? I hope not! One was A Man on A Sleep Medicine that made him Sleep Walk. He went outside & froze to death! That can't be A good useful prescription! I'm mentioning this to warn/Help others!!

  • Nope...none so far. There was a guy that took his dogs out for a walk (he was in Alaska) in -45 weather (it had been as cold as -65)....someone set claw traps out in the snow and one of his dogs got snapped by it. He called his wife so she could get the car ready and warn the vet. He got the dogs home and to the vet and proceded to have a stroke....a mixture of the extreme cold and the adrenaline rush.

  • None in IL that I know of and as for sleeping meds, they are great when used effectivly-that gentleman needed to tell someone help walked in his sleep or it is just an accident.I don't think you can blame the drug for his death.

  • I'm in IL too and haven't heard of any but it IS darned cold here right now. Our city has community warming centers for those that need them which I think is great!
