Deck Death in Door County

Heavy snow followed by heavy rain may have collapsed the deck outside a Door County home onto the homeowner, killing him.

Sheriff Terry Vogel says a woman from the town of Forestville called his office yesterday just before 6 p.m. to say she couldn't find her husband and the outside deck had collapsed.

Emergency personnel found the body of the 63-year-old man under the deck.

A preliminary investigation showed that a heavy snow accumulation followed by heavy rain Sunday night may have figured in the deck's collapse.

The victim's name was withheld pending notification of relatives.
