A jogger was ignored by passers-by as he lay on the ground dying of a heart attack in a busy park because they thought he was sunbathing.
The man, in his 30s, was found dead in the middle of the park, after a resident finally decided to check on him because he was not moving.
Emergency services were called Plumstead Common, in Greenwich, south east London, at around 6.30pm on Tuesday, where they found the man was already dead.
A resident, who asked not to be named, said:
He was just lying there. It was a lovely day, so there were a few people sunbathing.
He just looked like he was asleep or resting. I feel dreadful, I wish I'd thought to call the police earlier - he was there for a good hour.
Police confirmed the death is not being treated as suspicious.
