Residents try to resuscitate Polish man found dead in Witham street

Braintree and Witham Times: The man was found collapsed in Bronte Road in the early hours of Sunday morning The man was found collapsed in Bronte Road in the early hours of Sunday morning

A 39-year-old man who seemed fit and healthy collapsed and died in a Witham street.

Full-time mum Gemma Edwards saw the Polish national, who lived in Witham, lying on the ground in Bronte Road as she returned home from watching a boxing match on Sunday at around 3am.

The mum-of-two, 29, said local residents were attempting to resuscitate him when she arrived, but were unable to.

Ambulance crews then attended the scene but were unable to save the man, who is believed to live in the town’s Humber Road.

Miss Edwards said: “There was no blood, no sick, no wetness - nothing."

’ who is believed to live in………’?

He is deceased. He lives no more. What an unforgivable journalistic faux pas in this report.

‘Why-oh-Why’ can’t the BWT hacks get a grown up to check their work – especially when drafting reports concerning personal tragedies and potentially sensitive matters of this nature?

In circumstances such as this it is imperative that the wording should be beyond reproach and not risk offending or upsetting those personally affected in any way.

What a blunder!
