Boy found frozen near home

An 18-year-old Chaska boy found frozen near his home Feb. 24 died at the hospital the next day--on the teen's 19th birthday.

A snowplow operator discovered Sean P. Humphrey early last Sunday morning and was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. Humphrey's body temperature had dropped to 77 degrees, approximately 20 degrees lower than normal, police said.

Humphrey was found with a cut head, which investigators believe occurred when the boy walked on a sloping curb near the site where he had been discovered. Bob Humphrey, the teen's father, said his son had been at a party with friends the previous night.
