A local couple who died after the temperature in their home hit 100 degrees did have family and caregivers looking after them, according to a Morning Call report.
Lillian Kuzmak, 91, was found dead in her home on Apple Road in Weisenberg Township near Fogelsville on July 9 by a home health care worker.
Kuzmak's husband, Joseph, 90, died later at Lehigh Valley Hospital.
The Kuzmak's Lehigh County home has air conditioning but it was not turned on.
The couple's son says his parents were not obsessive about saving energy and that someone visited their home every day except Sunday, which is apparently when the heat wave took its toll.
