Shocked bankers this morning witnessed a technology worker fall to his death from the roof of the JP Morgan building in Canary Wharf.

Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old vice president in CIB Technology, who had worked with the bank since 2004, was pronounced dead at the scene in Bank Street shortly after 8am following a fall on to a ninth-floor roof.

A JP Morgan spokeswoman said: “We are deeply saddened to have lost a member of the J.P. Morgan family at 25 Bank Street today. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and his friends.”

And Twitter user @YellowAL tweeted: “Sad scene. Someone jumped/fell at JPMorgan Canary Wharf. A sorry view from my desk.”

London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance attended but they could not save the man.

No arrests have been made and the incident is being treated as non-suspicious at this stage.

Police from Tower Hamlets are investigating the circumstances.

It is the second high profile banking death within just a few days after Deutsche bank announced its former executive William Broeksmit 58, was found dead in his home on Sunday.
