An 80-year-old Hamilton woman has died while shovelling snow, paramedics confirm.

Crews said the woman had chest pain and collapsed on Friday morning.

They found her without vital signs and weren’t able to revive her.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hamilton paramedics said they had responded to several other calls about people with chest pain as snow continued to fall in the GTA.

As much as 25 centimetres of snow could accumulate by the end of the day Friday.
