ER24 paramedics attended to a scene in Dainfern on Wednesday whereby a man in his 50’s collapsed while playing tennis.

It has been reported that the man is Chief Executive Officer of BP South Africa Gerard Derbesy. 

ER24 Spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said they tried to resuscitate him on the scene with no luck. 

Derbesy became CEO after taking the position from Sipho Maseko in September 2011.

Jackson explains that upon their arrival they had to initiate resuscitation efforts.

“We then continued these efforts all the way to the nearby hospital but he was declared deceased in hospital,” added Jackson.

Furthermore Jackson explained that at this time it is still under investigation as to what exactly took place.
