Superfit Scots Doctor, 46, Dies After Heart Attack While Swimming
Mike “Kippy” Wilson, 46, was training for a triathlon when he had a heart attack and died.
The Daily Record reported that Doctor Wilson was pulled from Lochindorb in Grantown-on-Spey at around 12:55 am on August 18. The physician was training for a triathlon when he died.
The dad-of-two was reported missing, and emergency services went out to search the water. He was found deceased.
A native of Aberdeen, Wilson was a doctor at Dr Grays Hospital in Elgin. He was a graduate of the University of Dundee’s School of Medicine and an avid surfer.
His best friend Mike Watson is publicizing a fundraiser to help alleviate the burden of his sudden passing on the wife and daughters left behind. (Wilson had not written a will, so his belongings have gone to probate, which will incur legal costs, on top of the cost of the unexpected funeral.)
In mid-summer, a young doctor in Canada died a few days after collapsing during the swimming part of her triathlon training. She was one of eight doctors in Canada who passed away over a two-week period in July.
In September 2011, Mike Wilson was formally offered a physician’s job at a small town near Cape Town in South Africa. His friends advised him to come back home to Scotland. 💉
Wilson’s BFF Mike Watson proudly posted in May 2021 that he had himself injected with synthetic mRNA.
“Thank you, NHS.”
