 According to SaforGuia, the medical staff at the nearby health centre tried to wake the man but he was unresponsive. The staff have said the cause of his death is still unknown and an autopsy will be carried out.

Local and National Police were alerted and the man’s body was removed.

The deceased was allegedly a drug addict from the local area. He was with a friend and they both decided to lie down for a sleep which sadly the deceased did not wake from.

It remains unclear if drugs were taken prior to the men heading to the park.
