A British Airways cabin crew member has been found dead after a night out with friends. The 52-year-old Robert Gay spent the night with colleagues for food and drinks after they landed in the South African city from London.

Somehow Gay got separated from his colleagues and his body was found on the pavement in Whiteley Street in Melrose. According to Captain Mavela Masondo, police spokesperson, Gay was found collapsed on the ground, unconscious.

“Paramedics battled to save his life but unfortunately they were unsuccessful. Police were called to a scene at Whiteley Street in Melrose on 5 February 2022 at 04:00. On arrival they found the paramedics who were attending to a man who was found lying on the pavement. The paramedics later certified the man dead. He was found with no visible injuries. Police then opened an inquest docket for further investigation. Police are still waiting for post-mortem results that will confirm the real cause of death.”

Both the provincial police as well as the British High Commission in Pretoria have declined to comment about the death.
