Heat-Related Health Problems

The death of a man whose body workers found this morning near the Chatham-Bryan County line may be heat related. Around 8am this morning, workers found the body of 68-year-old William Eggar on Basin Road. They sent his body to the crime lab for an autopsy, but believe today's high temperatures contributed to his death.

They'll know more tomorrow after the autopsy.

In Beaufort County, Parris Island treated more than a dozen recruits for heat-related issues today. They brought at least four of them to Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

The base is under a black flag, meaning its medical center is filled with heat-related cases and all training is halted.
