    He died after an accident at Kastrup Airport. During a conversation with some colleagues near the British hangar, he was hit by a jeep, trying to avoid a collision with a big military truck. Then trapped between jeep and hangar wall.

    He died of his injuries at Sct. Elisabeth's Hospital (Copenhagen).
