Man’s death a ‘real shock’


Share post:

Sixty-nine-year-old Anthony Giraud collapsed and died near the entrance to the Cheapside Public Market yesterday morning.
Giraud’s niece Jean Walton was the first family member to visit the scene.  
A teary-eyed Walton said her uncle had no health complaints that she was aware of, while his daughter Donna Davis said her father’s death was “a real shock”. 
Walton said a friend, who was walking with Giraud shortly before he died, said he was fine, adding that they both walked together until they parted ways when Giraud went to get a bottle of iced water.
“The man said they were walking together and nothing was wrong with him. [Giraud’s friend] then went to collect his keys and by the time he got to work someone told him a man down the road dead . . . . [When] he went to look it was Anthony,” Walton said. (LK)
