"Nico Lambrechts, 46, fell through the atrium in front of horrified lunchtime diners and shoppers at No 1 Poultry, the building that houses Sir Terence Conran's exclusive Coq d'Argent restaurant"
anyone see anything here??....no!
ok then.......last month:
"The London Evening Standard reports that a businesswoman plunged to her death from the rooftop restaurant in front of more than a hundred people."
what restaurant....yep you guessed it, the Coq d'Argent restaurant
so what you say....2 deaths in 2 months...
"They are calling it the 'curse' of the Coq D'Argent, the popular French restaurant in the heart of London's financial district, where a third City professional jumped to her death Tuesday evening, from the roof terrace to the ground some 80 feet below. This is the third suicide from the same spot in the last 5 years."

You know what confuses me?
Why pick this method?
Who in their right mind decides to kill themselves like that? Okay, he obviously wasn't in his "right mind" so to speak, but why not go home, get drunk, listen to your favourite CD and pop some pills?
IMO, people who jump from tall buildings are either pushed (because we have a natural instinct against falling. It's like trying to drown yourself) or they experience a massive shock that causes a genuine insanity. I can understand that happening in an office, looking at a computer screen as all your investments collapse and you loose everything, but in a restaurant?
This just doesn't make sense to me.
I'm not saying he was pushed, but given that we have an instinctual trigger to prevent throwing ourselves from high things, and given that he didn't seem to have an obvious emotional problem, this reeks of shenanigans.
I think it would be wise to watch the numbers...

There could be a bunch of reasons why somebody would walk from their office and then jump off a building to their death.....But it is easy to imagine that this banker was involved in something and realized that he was going to take the fall for his bosses, so he figured it was better to take the fall from a tall building, than in court, where he would surely be sent to jail.
