By kcora on

Two kids walking home from school today found what they initially thought was an area woman's jacket but instead turned out to be the deceased 64-year-old woman, according to police.

Police responded to the 40's block of Sunnyside Road around 3:30 p.m., where two kids walking home found Mary Wall, lying in the snow with a shovel in her hands.

The kids told police that on their way from school they saw the woman's jacket on the ground so they went to the woman's home and knocked on her door to tell her.

However, when she did not respond they went over to the jacket, when they realized it was the woman.

According to preliminary investigation, it appears Wall suffered a medical emergency while shoveling snow.

The incident remains under investigation by authorities.

This is the fifth reported death in New Jersey during the winter storm.
