A member of the British Airways crew was discovered dead on the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa.

Following the discovery of a British Airways staff member deceased on a South African street, authorities have initiated an inquiry.

Robert Gay, 52, was discovered dead hours after travelling from London Heathrow to Johannesburg and had gone out for a night out with colleagues.

He was discovered with “no obvious injuries,” according to reports. Mr. Gay’s death is being investigated by detectives in the city, which has a high rate of violent crime.

“It appears he was heading back to crew hotel and got separated from his pals and was found dead around 4am on 5 February,” a source close to the investigation told the Daily Mail.

“A heart attack is suspected as the cause of death, however full postmortem reports are pending.”

Friends and colleagues have begun to pay tribute to the crew member.

“We had a fantastic evening with steak and wine and put the world right reminiscing about the good ol’ BA days,” one coworker posted on Facebook, adding, “So stunned and grieved that you’re gone Rob.” You were without a doubt one of the sweetest, friendliest, and most intriguing gentlemen I’ve ever met.”

“We’re profoundly saddened by this news, and our thoughts and sincere condolences are with our colleague’s family and friends at this sad time,” a British Airways representative said.

“We’re assisting all of our colleagues who may require assistance.”
