Two elderly sisters were found dead in their home in the Akabane area of Tokyo on Monday morning in what appears to be yet another fatality caused by heat stroke.

The bodies of Shizuko Ogata, 93, and her sister Miyoko, 84, were discovered by a helper who visited their home, a condominium in the capital’s Kita Ward, at around 10 a.m on July 23.

The apartment had no air conditioners or fans to cool them down despite the scorching heat in Tokyo, police said. There were no exterior bodily injuries, leading authorities to presume that the two have died as a result of a heat stroke.
