Memphis Area Records 14th Heat-Related Death

MEMPHIS, TN - Authorities in Memphis have confirmed a 14th heat-related death within Shelby County from the current heat wave.

The Shelby County Medical Examiner yesterday said a 27-year-old woman who lived in a home without air conditioning died.  Although she had chronic health problems, the examiner says extreme heat contributed to her death Friday.  The high temperature in the city that day was 100.
