The 60-year-old man, who phoned 9-1-1 at 9:49 p.m. to report that his wife had a heart attack, was found slumped over her body when medics and deputies arrived at the home no more than eight minutes later, Sgt. John Keegan said.
Neither could be revived. The woman was 59.
Keegan declined to identify the couple, saying he didnâ€™t know if family members had been notified.
Keegan said that the man died of natural causes, possibly a heart attack.
He was apparently performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on his wife when he died, according to the Sheriffâ€™s Office.
