A Bethel man died after being found in an unheated home. Norbert Kashatok of Bethel was pronounced dead after medics and health care workers attempted to revive him.
Bethel fire department medics got a call early Tuesday morning about a man who could not be woken up by a friend. It was just before 2 a.m.
They responded to a residence near Mission Road and found Kashatok cold, lying on the floor. He didn’t have a pulse but medics started CPR and attempted to revive him. They transported him to the hospital where health workers continued treatment. However, Kashatok was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The home Kashatok was found in was not heated but it appeared that he was attempting to stay there, possibly with others.
Bethel police say they are not investigating because no foul play is suspected.
