Doctor Offers Tips for Cold Weather & Shoveling

Most shoveling, snowblowing or cold temperature related incidents can be prevented with common sense.
December 17, 2013 - We've seen our fair share of snow and cold temperatures over the last few days so experts want to remind you about staying safe.

Dr. Wayne Jones of Saint Vincent Hospital says two age groups are most susceptible to the cold temperatures -- the young and the elderly.

He says you should check on them frequently and if they're outside make sure they're ok.

Dr. Jones says to use common sense when snow blowing and to not stick your hand inside the machine whatsoever.

He says those who are shoveling also need to be careful because it's more work than we think.

He says the number of heart attacks and patients with hypothermia increase this time of year.
