Gabriel Magee, a technology vice president in JP Morgan’s London office, fell to his death from a 33-story office in London’s financial district on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

Magee, 39, was an executive in the company’s corporate and investment bank technology division. Police are calling the incident “non-suspicious.”

“We are deeply saddened to have lost a member of the JP Morgan family at 25 Bank Street today,” JP Morgan said in a statement. “Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and his friends.”

Magee fell from the building’s roof and landed on a lower part of the roof about nine stories down, Reuters said.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported that many working in the area, which is rife with skyscrapers, were disturbed that Magee’s body was on the roof for about four hours.

Patel also tweeted, “It seems one banker has had enough.”

Magee’s was the second apparent suicide of financial execs in the past few days.

Former Deutsche Bank senior manager William Broeksmit apparently hung himself in his home over the weekend, the U.K.'s Daily Mail said, and his death was also ruled non-suspicious by police.

The financial industry has been criticized for long hours and high stress that have seemed to ramp up the number of suicides in the past few years.

Reuters said a Bank of America manager stepped in front of a train and another man jumped from a seven-story restaurant.

USA Today said Magee had good work reviews and an annual bonus. The Daily Mail quoted an onlooker at the scene as saying, “It was bonus week at JP Morgan last week so I hope it wasn't to do with that.”
