GP treated for shock after husband dies in holiday accident

A Bradford GP is being treated for shock after her husband died in a jet skiing accident in Australia.

Hospital doctor Dr Sridhar Shekar, 31, from Leeds, died at the scene after losing control of a jet ski the couple had hired.

His wife Dr Divya Patel, who was riding as a passenger on the jet ski, escaped with minor injuries. She has been a GP partner at Cowgill Surgery, Clayton, Bradford for four months. 

A spokesman for Bradford and Airedale Teaching PCT said: ‘Both the PCT and Cowgill Surgery are saddened to learn of the tragic death of Dr Patel’s husband. 

‘The PCT is supporting the practice and also its patients who will be gradually finding out about this sad news.’

‘We would like to send our sincere condolences to Dr Patel and her family at this difficult time.’
