A MAN in his 60s has died after he collapsed in a park in Up Hatherley today.
Paramedics rushed to Brizen Playing Fields, just outside Brizen Young People’s Centre, today after receiving reports around 2.45pm that a man had collapsed by a bench.
An ambulance and a rapid response vehicle were sent to the scene, together with a critical team from the air ambulance team.
Police were called after the ambulance had problems getting through the 2.2 metre barrier at the front of the car park, although paramedics managed to get to the man.
He was treated less than 100 metres away from a children’s skate park and football court, where more than eight children were playing.
Despite the paramedics’ best efforts, the Cheltenham man died on the scene.
More information as it comes in.
