Police Scotland officers in Perth can advise that a 59 year old male has died after having been seen to collapse in the High Street at about 1030 hours on Sunday 08 June 2014.
Local officers, members of the public and ambulance personnel all assisted in carrying out first aid actions at the scene of his collapse but unfortunately the male was pronounced deceased shortly after his arrival at Perth Royal Infirmary. There are no suspicious circumstances.
It’s believed the 59-year-old man was a freelance press photographer who was capturing the events of Kirking of the Council parade.
As is the case of all sudden deaths, a report of the circumstances will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
