Ryanair pilot found dead

Some very sad news here. Although the Sun is saying this was suicide other reports state it was a suspected heart attack. Either way a tragic outcome.

Nothing in the Sun report explains why suicide is being suggested and story doesn't (yet) seem to have been picked up by other UK media. He could have suffered a heart attack or some other circulatory incident and managed to park his car before becoming totally incapacitated.

I remember some years ago that Britannia (Thomson) had at least three suicides in one summer season. I knew two of them; one very well. Very sad.

Death of anybody is not a reason for sensational news headlines.

I am just numb.
This one is a bit to close to home.
What can we do?!

What did Thomson do in particular ?
My sincerest condolences to friend and family.

Not much I am afraid. Attend the funeral perhaps?
