Bihar Man Dies of Heatstroke in Delhi Hospital, Fever Reaches 107 Degrees

A 40-year-old man from Darbhanga, Bihar, succumbed to a heatstroke at Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital yesterday amid a record-breaking heatwave in the national capital.

The man was admitted to the hospital late Monday night after experiencing severe symptoms of heatstroke. According to a doctor who treated him, he was living in a room without a cooler or fan and had an extremely high fever. His body temperature reached a critical 107 degrees Fahrenheit, nearly 10 degrees above normal. This marks the first reported heatstroke death in Delhi this summer.

Delhi has been enduring extreme summer conditions with unprecedented temperatures, soaring power demand, and a severe water crisis. The Mungeshpur weather station on the city’s outskirts recorded a temperature of 52.9 degrees Celsius, the highest ever recorded by any station in the country. The weather office is currently investigating whether the record reading at Mungeshpur was due to a sensor error or specific local factors.
