A WOMAN has issued a thank you to a dog walker who helped her when she found an injured man this morning, who was later confirmed to have died.

Writing in a public community Facebook group, Ann Manuela Ellis said her daughter-in-law found the man at about 6am this morning and was supported by a passer-by in calling emergency services as she needed to go to work.

She said: "My daughter-in-law found a man around 6am this morning in the garden of the block of flats on the corner of Kingsway and Langdale Gardens.

The Argus:

"He may have fallen from a balcony.

"She tried to ask help from lots of joggers passing and no-one would stop or help her.

"Eventually a man with two dogs came to her aid and called an ambulance.

"She would like to say thank you to him for helping and taking over as she had to go to work.

"She said the people who passed her whilst asking for help should be ashamed."

The Argus:

The area was cordoned off this morning and Sussex Police confirmed the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A spokesman said: "Emergency services were called at about 6.34am after a man was found with serious head injuries at the junction of Kingsway and Langdale Gardens in Hove.

"He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

"There are no suspicious circumstances and the coroner's officer has been informed.

"We have no further information at this time."
