A 49-year-old Shelton man died Saturday morning while clearing snow from his driveway, police said.

Emergency officials were notified of a man down in a driveway on Darrin Drive at about 5 a.m.

The man was found by a neighbor after his wife became alarmed he had not returned to their home, a press release issued by Shelton Police Detective Sgt. Kevin Ahern Saturday said..

The man was unconscious and not breathing when emergency personnel arrived.

He was then pronounced dead at the scene.

“Preliminary investigation reveals the male was plowing his private driveway and his vehicle became stuck,” the press release said. “It appears the male suffered a medical event while shoveling out the vehicle.”

Police are witholding the man’s name pending notification of family.

Conditions made it hard for emergency responders to get to the man.

“Roadways were nearly impassable and a snowmobile with a sled had to be used to help get the male to the ambulance,” the press release said.
