Moritz Erhardt, a 21-year-old intern for Bank of America has died after working 72 hours straight at the corporation's London office, reports indicate.
For three days, he finished his workday at 6 a.m., then just kept working. The cause of death is unknown, and British police are not treating it as suspicious.
Is this insane-sounding work "schedule" abnormal for his line of work?
An unnamed fellow intern tells The Independent: "We all work long hours but the guys working regularly until 3 or 4 am are those in investment banking."
"You're only doing it for up to 10 weeks so there's a general acceptance of it."
