Lorry driver Nuri Yardas was found dead by friends in the cab of his lorry yesterday. The 53 year old driver, an employee of Asan Nakliyat, had been working on the site of the Merit Hotel extension in Alsancak.
Originally from Turkey but with TRNC citizenship, Mr Yardas may have had a heart attack. He suffered from high blood pressure and had been complaining about pains and planning to go to hospital earlier.
Police have investigated the area and there has been an autopsy to determine cause of death. Results are expected back from Turkey soon.
Mr Yardas lived alone here, with his family back in Turkey. He will be buried back in Adiyaman, his home town.
