Man, 90, dies of hypothermia after spending night outside

WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Frigid temperatures brought tragedy to a neighborhood in Williamsburg County when a 90-year-old man froze to death in his front yard overnight.

The coroner said Moise Wilson died of hypothermia outside his home on Broomstraw Road in the community of Lane. A neighbor found him Tuesday morning.

Wilson apparently lived alone, officials said.

Investigators think he became confused, wandered outside and died from the freezing temperatures.
