DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - At least one death is being attributed to the record-breaking snowstorm that hit western South Dakota.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says a rural Deadwood resident collapsed while cleaning snow off his roof and later died.

KEVN-TV reports that authorities did not immediately identify the person.

The weekend storm dumped 4 feet of snow near Deadwood.
