A 21-year-old intern who worked grueling hours at Bank of America's London office died just a week before his internship was to conclude.
Moritz Erhardt, who studied at the WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar, Germany, reportedly had worked until 6 a.m. for three days straight and was found dead in his flat. Erhardt, who suffered from epilepsy, collapsed in his shower, according to reports. Erhardt had studied at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business and left three months ago.
"We are deeply shocked and saddened by the news of Moritz Erhardt's death," BofA said in a statement. "He was popular amongst his peers and was a highly diligent intern at our company with a promising future. Our first thoughts are with his family and we send our condolences to them at this difficult time
