Two weather-related deaths in Ridley


Mother Nature claimed the lives of two elderly people in Ridley Township today.

Authorities were not ready to release the circumstances of the deaths, but police did say that one victim was a woman and the other a man. They had both wandered out into the frigid cold and died from injuries they received as a result of the weather, according to police.

The Delaware County Daily Times said one of the victims was an 89-year-old man with Alzheimer's who was found in his underwear in a neighbor's yard. Police would not immediatley confirm that report.
