MIAMI (AP) —A third death in South Carolina has been attributed to Hurricane Irma.
Sumter County Coroner Robert Baker Jr. says 54-year-old William McBride was pronounced dead Tuesday of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Baker says McBride had been running a generator inside his mobile home for at least several hours, with only a single window cracked for ventilation.
Baker says power was knocked out in some parts of the county at around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
Baker says McBride's sons found him Tuesday morning and called authorities.
