Dr. Michael Mosley Died of Heat Exhaustion Near Greek Resort During Searing 40C Heat

by Mohammed Ahmed

Police have confirmed that Dr. Michael Mosley, the renowned health guru and Mail columnist, died of heat exhaustion after collapsing near a holiday resort on the Greek island of Symi. The 67-year-old’s body was found face up in a rocky area at Agia Marina, just 260 feet from safety at a beach bar.

A five-day search for Dr. Mosley, who was widely loved and respected, ended in tragedy when his body was discovered. Rhodes coroner Despina Nethena conducted the initial post-mortem examination, which revealed no signs of third-party involvement or criminal activity. However, a definitive cause of death has yet to be determined.

Symi police commander Dimos Kotsidaras stated, “It looks like the cause of death was heat exhaustion after walking in high temperatures from St Nicholas to Agia Marina.” The excessive heat, which reached up to 40C, is believed to have played a crucial role in his death.

CCTV footage shows Dr. Mosley wandering in a confused state for twenty minutes before collapsing. In the video, he pauses momentarily by a perimeter wall, resting one hand on it, before losing his balance and disappearing from sight.

The Symi Crisis Rescue Volunteer Team, which was involved in the search, expressed their condolences to Dr. Mosley’s family. In a statement, they said, “Our team was called in by island authorities to assist in the search investigation on the very first night of his disappearance and we immediately began with a first-night search. We continued all the coming days to participate in the investigations together with firefighters, police officers, and other volunteers, as always directed by the head of the investigation. High temperatures and rough spots made this mission particularly difficult, and unfortunately, the outcome was one we all know.”

Dr. Mosley was known for his significant contributions to public health and well-being, and his loss is felt deeply by his family, friends, and fans around the world. His tragic death serves as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by extreme heat and the importance of taking precautions during high temperatures.

As investigations continue, the exact circumstances leading to Dr. Mosley’s death will be further examined.
