Heat May Have Led to Couple's Death at Natural Hot Springs: Deputies

Sheriff's deputies in Nevada are investigating whether two people whose bodies were found in a hot spring died because the water was too hot. 

Humboldt County Sheriff's Capt. Kevin Malone told the Reno Gazette-Journal that the bodies were found at Bog Hot Springs on Sunday, near the Oregon border. 

Nevada is home to hundreds of hot springs, which range in temperature from warm to scalding. 

Malone says a friend discovered their bodies after searching for them. 

Deputies are still investigating the cause of death but don't suspect foul play.
