Oxford: Man Dies in Floods
A man's died in Oxford after falling from a flooded path into the river Thames
Heart's being told the man's death - after falling from his mobility scooter is being treated as unexplained - after police were called out to Osney Lock near the city centre on Saturday 4th January 2014.
Thames Valley Police attended Osney Lock shortly after 6.30pm, following a report that a man using a mobility scooter had entered the river.
The man, who was aged 47 and from the Oxford area, was recovered from the lock and died at the scene.
His next of kin has been informed. The man?s death is being treated as unexplained at this stage but is not believed to be suspicious.
Supt Christian Bunt, LPA Commander for Oxford, said: "This tragic incident highlights the dangers of using pathways which have flooded in areas including Oxford.
"The public should be particularly careful following the recent heavy rainfall, especially along the River Thames, and ensure they do not put themselves at risk by entering flood water. I urge anyone using these areas to take extra caution.
"Our thoughts are with the family of the man who has died."
It comes as the Environment Agency urges people in West Oxfordshire to be prepared for 'significant flooding' with a flood warning issued - covering places like Benson and Wallingford.
