Megan Gale's brother Jason has died, two years after he saw a mate struck and killed by a burst pipe at a Perth water treatment plant.
Heartbroken friends and neighbours say the brother of supermodel Megan Gale never got over witnessing the horrific workplace incident that killed his mate.

The week long search for Jason Gale, 49, ended on Tuesday afternoon after his body was found near his silver Honda CR-V in bushland south-east of Perth.

Police aren't treating his death as suspicious.

Friends said Mr Gale had been struggling with the death of his beloved dog Badge and remained haunted by a tragic industrial incident that killed a colleague.

Robert Cunico, 60, was struck and killed by a burst pipe at Perth's Woodman Point waste water treatment plant on April 20 2018 while working as a supervisor for contractor Civmec Construction and Engineering.

'He was taken too soon, in a way in which nobody should ever suffer,' Mr Cunico's son Scott wrote on an online fundraising page at the time.

'Nobody should ever go to work and not return home safely.'

Mr Gale was also working at the site that day as an industrial mechanic and witnessed his mate's horrific death.

Mr Cunico's devastated widow thanked those who tried to save her husband's life, including Mr Gale.

'A huge thanks to Peter, Chris, Andrew, Jason, Dave who I have since found out were there with Rob in his time of need,' Debby Cunico wrote on Facebook at the time.

'They all stayed with him the entire time holding him and comforting him.

'At least we can take comfort in knowing that Rob did not pass alone you are all legends for this we will be for ever grateful to you.

'There are no words that will ever be enough to express our love for you and for what you did.'
