A man who was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday from a Philadelphia home and later died was not a victim of the heat, investigators have concluded.

That man has been identified as 67-year-old Edward Green.

Medics were called to the 900 block of Carver Street in the Lawncrest section of Philadelphia around 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday for a report of an unresponsive man.

Once there, they found Green who did not have a pulse.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Medics who attended to Green said they believed his symptoms were consistent with heat-related problems, but further investigation has ruled out heat as a cause of death. An exact cause has not been released.
