Journalist Dies From Brain Aneurysm After Collapsing While Jogging

A journalist for BBC Scotland died after suffering a brain aneurysm at the age of 32.

Nick Sheridan collapsed while jogging and had been placed in an induced coma by doctors, according to The Telegraph. He passed away Wednesday night, over a week after the collapse happened, while surrounded by his family, his friends said.

BBC Scotland head of news Gary Smith paid tribute to Sheridan in a statement released Thursday morning.

“He was a hugely talented journalist, presenter and author—and one of those rare people who light up the lives of everyone around them. Funny, clever, kind. A lovely man,” Smith said. “Our hearts go out to his parents, who have been with him over the past ten days, to his partner, Lewis, and to all the rest of his family and friends.”

First Minister Humza Yousaf honored him during his weekly question session in the Scottish Parliament.
