    Heat stroke deaths renew calls for worker safety - AP, Monterey County Herald, CA
    The second farmworker in a year has died of heat exposure in triple-digit temperatures, sparking renewed calls from labor leaders for worker safety regulations in extreme heat.

    Witnesses said Salud Zamudio Rodriguez, 42, was picking bell peppers in Arvin south of Bakersfield in 105-degree heat Wednesday when he complained of feeling ill, according to Lupe Martinez, a vice president of the United Farm Workers of America.
