Sandy death toll climbs - again

The U.S. death toll from Superstorm Sandy has jumped again.

It is now at least 113.  The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner raised that city's death toll today to 43.

A 77 year-old man from the Far Rockaway neighborhood in Queens fell down a flight of stairs November 6 and later died at a hospital, the examiner's office said.  Also, a 66 year-old man was found in his Staten Island home on Friday - 11 days after the storm.  He had drowned.

The death toll for the city includes one police officer; another 78 were injured in the line of duty, New York police said.

    The 4-year-old son of Oakland Raiders defensive line coach Terrell Williams has died.

    Remembering the many athletes sports lost way too soon.

    The team said Saturday that Tyson Williams died Friday at Oakland Children's Hospital, days after celebrating his birthday. The boy became unexpectedly ill this month, but the team did not elaborate on his illness.
