    How about a pregnant woman who JUST had a baby?

    That headline...first the guy drowns, then he dies. That's tough luck. How do they know he didn't die, then drown?

    Dying twice is a bit much.

    I heard of a man being electocuted, then dying, but that was a kid talking...

    this is a danger that we all must watch out for in our quest to stay cool with the very early onset of August-like weather.

    Also, kudos to WRAL for inventive phrasing on the headline.
