Killed by working too hard – Bank of America Intern Moritz Erhardt was found dead in his apartment after working for three nights straight.
Last Aug. 15, London-based BofA intern Moritz Erhardt was found dead in his apartment after working for three nights straight. In October, a post-mortem investigation found Erhardt died from an epileptic seizure.
His family believes the seizure may have been cause by a lack of sleep.
The death sparked a debate over whether banks overwork their interns.
For aspiring investment bankers like Erhardt at firms like Goldman, BofA, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley piling on the hours is typically a badge of courage.
