An investment banker on Tuesday jumped to his death from the roof of Chater House in Central, where Wall Street bank JP Morgan has its Asia headquarters, several witnesses told the South China Morning Post.

 

Witnesses said the man initially went to the roof of Chater House, a 30-floor building in the heart of Hong Kong's central business district -- and later jumped. The incident happened between 2pm and 3pm, one witness said.

 

Several policemen were seen on the roof but apparently failed to convince the man not to jump, one of the witnesses said. Police later confirmed to the Post that a 33-year-old man -- surnamed Li -- was found in a dangerous position on the roof of Chater House on Connaught Road Central at 2.08pm local time. Li threw himself off the building before the city's emergency crew arrived.
