Paramedics have revealed there was nothing they could do to save the life of a 46-year-old man in Meir yesterday (Sunday, March 1).
West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to a flat in Lyme Road, Meir , shortly before 8am.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We were called at 7:59am yesterday to reports of a medical emergency at an address in Lyme Road in Meir.
“Two ambulances attended the scene.
“Upon arrival, crews found one patient, a man. Unfortunately nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
Staffordshire Police were also called to the scene and a cordon was put in place as officers started their inquiries, but there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.
The death has rocked residents living in Lyme Road and say he had only moved in to the property in January.
His next door neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I woke up at about 8am and saw the ambulance and police and wondered what had gone on.
“There were three police cars and two ambulances at one point and they were going into the flat. They were then here for at least an hour.
“They had only moved into the flats in January so I don’t really know the people who live there and nobody seems to know what happened.
“It’s very sad, I hope it’s nothing bad but I didn’t hear any noise. It’s not a nice thing to wake up to.”
