NEW YORK (AP) — The half brother of a man who died after collapsing during a run in a New York City park has died days later, also while jogging.

The Daily News (http://nydn.us/1mKfvYb ) says 60-year-old Peter Berry collapsed while running in Central Park on Sunday.

His half brother 68-year-old Rynn Berry went into cardiac arrest during a New Year's Eve run in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. He died on Jan. 9.

The men's last surviving sibling, Charles Berry, called it "a shock for the family."

Rynn Berry, who had no identification on him, lay comatose and unidentified in a Brooklyn hospital for several days until his half-sibling identified him.

Both men had competed in the New York Marathon.
