San Diego (CNS) – Authorities announced the name of a 68-year-old Los Angeles area man who died last weekend in an outing with a volunteer group counting bighorn sheep in the extreme heat of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
According to the San Diego County Forensic Office, a hiker spotted Donald White in Culver City in the Porego Palm Canyon Trail area shortly after noon on Saturday and called 911 to report an emergency.
When the medical staff arrived, they found that White was unconscious and unresponsive. After trying to resurrect him to no avail, the staff announced on the spot that he was dead.
On Saturday, the temperature in nearby Borrego Springs reached 116 degrees.
Before the autopsy was completed, the verdict on the cause of White’s death was shelved.
