Runner dies at Chicago Marathon; 250 hospitalized
October 7, 2007

CHICAGO (AP) -- A Michigan man died Sunday while running the Chicago Marathon as stifling heat and smothering humidity forced organizers to shut down the course midway through the race.

Chad Schieber, 35, collapsed while running on the South Side and was pronounced dead shortly before 1 p.m. at a Veteran's Affairs hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

An autopsy on the Midland, Mich., man was scheduled for Monday.

Another 250 people were taken to area hospitals because of heat-related ailments.

Organizers closed the second half of the course just before noon, four hours after the annual race started and with temperatures already at 73 degrees with 86 percent humidity. By 10 a.m., temperatures had already reached a race-record 88 degrees. The previous marathon record of 84 degrees was set in 1979.
