WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis (WSAU)   Hypothermia is the cause of death for a 55-year-old Wisconsin Rapids man. Police say Jeffrey Nash suffered a medical emergency while in his car inside his garage on Wednesday. He was unable to move or get help, and died from exposure to the extreme cold.

A family member went to his home to check on Nash and found him slumped over inside the car.

The medical examiner says the body may have been there for several days. The exact time of death hasn't been determined.
