SW Side man dies after stove mishap

July 6, 2010

A man who apparently suffered a heart attack while cooking in his Southwest Side apartment Monday night has died.

About 9:45 p.m. firefighters responded to a second-floor apartment in the 2400 block of West 79th Street to find smoke from sausages burning on the stove, fire spokesman Joe Roccasalva said.

The 52-year-old man -- who was identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Stanley Scales -- lived alone and was rescued by firefighters who then discovered he was suffering from cardiac arrest, Roccasalva said.

Scales was pronounced dead at 10:11 p.m. Monday at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to a spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office. Scales was not burned, according to the spokesman.

The man was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital for the heart condition. He was not burned and did not suffer from smoke inhalation, Roccasalva said.

No one else was hurt and there was no actual fire, Roccasalva said.

An autopsy is scheduled for later Tuesday.,sw-side-fire-0706.article
