They administered CPR prior as they waited for paramedics to arrive.
But despite their best efforts the male was pronounced dead at the scene, the Metropolitan Police said.
Police say they are trying to identity the man and inform his next of kin.
Enquiries are ongoing and a crime scene is in place, says the force.
