MAHWAH - A fifth death is being attributed to Saturday’s large snowstorm.

The Mahwah police chief tells News 12 New Jersey that a 64-year-old woman was found dead outside a home on Sunnyside Road Monday afternoon.

She was identified as Mary Wall. It is believed she suffered a medical issue while shoveling snow.

Police say that Wall’s body was completely covered by snow when she was found. She was dressed in full snow gear and had a shovel in her hand. Neighborhood children found her body, because they thought it was a jacket lost in the snow.

Police do not suspect foul play.

At least four other deaths have been attributed to this storm.

In Passaic, a 23-year-old mother and her 1-year-old son died from carbon monoxide poisoning while sitting in a car Saturday evening. The car’s tailpipe was blocked by snow.

A 78-year-old woman was found dead inside her car in a Burger King parking lot in Hackensack Monday. Police say that the woman told employees she was too afraid to drive home.

In East Greenwich, NJ.com reports a 62-year-old man died Saturday after his car got stuck in the snow and he tried to walk home.
