Health experts remind us to stay safe in extreme heat, especially if you're outside for long periods of time.

If you're doing physical labor, it's important to take regular breaks, find shade and drink a lot of water.

Also, wear light-colored clothing and sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher.

The humidity coupled with the heat can be dangerous and even deadly.

Last night, 60-year-old James Eddy was found unresponsive lying face down in front of a Broken Arrow house.

The state medical examiner is investigating the cause of death, but police believe it could have been heat-related.

Neighbors say Eddy was doing yard work.
