Second JPMorgan employee dies in a fall – Feb. 19, 2014


Police said the 33-year old man jumped from the top of JPMorgan’s regional headquarters in the city’s central business district. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital at 2:30 p.m.

The death of the Hong Kong resident was being treated as a suicide, police said, adding that they were investigating pressure of work as a possible motive.

JPMorgan (JPM, Fortune 500) confirmed that a “tragic incident” had taken place at its offices in Chater House, where it occupies the top 10 floors.

“Out of respect for those involved, we cannot comment further,” the company said in a statement. “Our thoughts and sympathy are with the family that’s involved at this difficult time.”

A source at the bank said the man — identified by police only by his surname, Li — was a junior employee.
