IRWIN, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania family is morning the deaths of a father and son who each died of heart attacks a little more than an hour apart.

Charles McCauley Jr. was rushing to his father's home Saturday after learning of the older man's death when the younger McCauley began suffering from chest pains. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports father and son died 1 hour and 7 minutes apart.

Eighty-three-year-old Charles McCauley Sr. had been watching the Pittsburgh Steelers preseason game on television at his Irwin home when he suffered a heart attack.

His 54-year-old son was at the game and was stricken after being called by paramedics and walking out of the game to his car.

Family friends called the double tragedy difficult to grasp.
