A man has died after suffering a head injury falling down a flight of stairs in a close in what police have described as “a tragic accident”.
Emergency services were called to Spey Drive and Deveron Crescent after the man was found unconscious and lying in a pool of blood.
Eyewitnesses told of seeing paramedics battle to save him just after 1pm on Sunday.
However, the man died as a result of injuries he sustained in the fall.
Police later returned to the scene, with roads being cordoned off while officers investigated the circumstances of the incident.
They have confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances.
A spokesman said: “Police Scotland attended in Spey Drive and Deveron Terrace, Dundee, during the evening on July 1 to conduct inquiries regarding the death of a 58-year-old man.
“There were no suspicious circumstances and a report is to be sent to the procurator fiscal.”
Hakan Yildiz, 39, who lives in the close, said he had seen CID officers carrying out inquiries.
He added: “There were police officers wearing black and they were at the back of the stairs.
“They were going around the building trying to figure out what had happened.
“There was blood on the floor and there was also a towel lying there covered in blood.”
Another witness, who asked not to be named, said she had been walking across to a nearby park with her son when she saw the man lying on the ground.
She added: “It was about 1pm. We crossed the road and there was a man lying on the ground with breathing equipment on him.
“Police and ambulances were present but we didn’t hang about.”
Another witness said she had seen paramedics attempting to save the man.
She added: “I came to visit my friend and the paramedics were outside with a man giving him oxygen.
“There was a pool of blood and also a towel soaked in blood on the floor.
“Two ambulances came and one of them took him away to Ninewells.
“Police were there later which made me think that he had possibly died.
“It is shocking to hear about something like that happening.”
