A senior Google engineer has reportedly jumped to his death from the 14th floor of the company’s headquarters in New York City.
According to authorities, however, the 31-year-old man, whose identity is being withheld, didn’t leave a suicide note or a video message before taking the fatal plunge.
The man was found dead on the ground outside the massive Google building at 111 Eighth Ave, The New York Post reported.
He was found by police after they responded to multiple 911 reports about an unresponsive person near the 15-story Google building.
The engineer was then transported to Bellevue Hospital.
He was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Police said the victim’s handprints were discovered at the edge of a 14th-floor open-air terrace.
However, investigators found no sign of a suicide note or video recording, which is unusual in such cases.
This is the second incident in which a Google employee took his life this year.
The New York Post reported that another male Google employee in his thirties who worked at the same building also died a few months earlier.
“The employee’s death comes months after Jacob Pratt, a 33-year-old Google employee who also worked at the Manhattan headquarters, was found dead of an apparent suicide,” the newspaper reports.
“Pratt appeared to have hanged himself in an apartment at the corner of West 26th Street and 6th Avenue in Chelsea just before 6 p.m. Feb. 16.”
In 2018, another Google software engineer was found dead inside the tech giant’s Chelsea headquarters.
A janitor found 22-year-old Scott Krulcik unconscious at his work terminal on the sixth floor of the building.
EMS workers tried to perform CPR but to no avail.
Krulcik, described as “vibrant” by those who knew him, was pronounced dead at the scene.
His body did not show any signs of trauma, and there did not appear to be criminality involved, authorities said.
The latest Google death is also the second fatal fall in New York City in the space of a week.
Last Tuesday, a 20-year-old mother from Colorado fell to her death from a Times Square hotel.
Dezirae Andersen was found dead after falling from the roof of the OYO Times Square hotel on West 47th Street.
Police said that she got into a physical fight with her boyfriend, Tyler Griffin, just before plunging to her death.
Police were originally called to the hotel on reports of Griffin assaulting Andersen in her hotel room.
Andersen then fell from the building’s 10th floor and landed on scaffolding above the street.
Police have since arrested Griffin, 24, and charged him with assault, reckless endangerment, and acting in a manner that could have harmed a baby.
