A 57-year-old man who died from hypothermia has been rescued from a submerged home after a week of rain, officials said.
The man was found Sunday morning at a property in the town of Eudox, about 60 miles north of New York City, said Lt.
David LeBrun, a spokesman for the New York State Police.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
It was not immediately clear if the man was homeless.
A spokesman for a nearby housing authority said the man had been staying with friends in the area for about two months.
The cause of death was not known, LeBrunner said.
He added that the water was still rising in the home and that the man’s family was staying at the home with the man when he died.
The New York Daily News reported that police have been searching for a person or persons who may have been responsible for the death.
