Technology expert dies after falling from JP Morgan’s London HQ
A technology expert fell to his death on Tuesday from the London skyscraper housing investment bank JP Morgan’s European headquarters.
Gabriel Magee, 39, fell from the 33-floor building in London’s financial hub Canary Wharf at around 8:00 am (0800 GMT), police said. He landed on a ninth floor roof.
Magee was a vice-president in JP Morgan’s corporate and investment bank technology division and had worked for the US bank for a decade, his employers said.
He worked in the technology department and was not a trader or a banker, JP Morgan said.
Paramedics and air ambulance staff attended but Magee was pronounced dead at the scene shortly afterwards.
His death is being treated as “non-suspicious” at this stage, London’s Metropolitan Police said.
The bank said it was “deeply saddened to have lost a member of the JP Morgan family”.
“Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and his friends,” a spokesman said.
