Bank of America intern said dead after working long hours


Sad to report.

Bloomberg News reports that Bank of America said a 21-year-old intern died one week before completing a summer program.

Moritz Erhardt, who was on a seven-week pre-graduate program in London, died August 15, Bank of America spokesman John McIvor said by telephone yesterday, Monday. The death is being treated as non-suspicious, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police in London said in a statement.

'He was popular amongst his peers and was a highly diligent intern at our company with a promising future,' Bank of America said in its statement. 'Our first thoughts are with his family and we send our condolences to them at this difficult time.'

Erhardt was found unconscious at Claredale House, a student residential facility in East London. He was pronounced dead at the scene after being treated by paramedics, said the police spokesman, who asked not to be identified, citing agency policy.

He went to high school at Faust-Gymnasium in Staufen, Germany, where he excelled in math and tennis, according to the biography page. His hobbies included sports and politics, according to the profile.
