Emergency services were called to the scene in Hay Lane, near Lydiard Park, at around 8pm following a 999 call reporting that a man was in cardiac arrest at the roadside.
Despite the best efforts of members of the public – quickly backed up by ambulances crews, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Great Western Air Ambulance – he was pronounced dead.
