LONDON, England – A man believed to be a City worker has died after plunging from a roof terrace in front of horrified tourists in central London.

The 23-year-old fell from the top of a ten-story office building near Tower Bridge on the South Bank.

Police were called to the block, MoreLondon Riverside, at around 7.45pm last night following reports of a man believed to have fallen from the roof.

Paramedics from London Ambulance Service also arrived but the man, believed to work for PwC was pronounced dead at the scene.

The death has been deemed non suspicious.

Eyewitnesses described how terrified passerbys screamed out as the man fell into an area packed with tourists and office workers.

One worker said: “I saw it. It was horrible. I wasn’t looking up but I saw his silhouette falling against the sky with his legs and arms flailing and then heard a massive bang.”

A Met Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called to More London Riverside at 7.44pm following reports of a man fallen.

“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a man in his twenties suffering from critical injuries.

“The man was pronounced dead at the scene.”

“Next of kin have been notified.

“The case has been referred to the Coroner.”

A spokesman for PwC said the company was co-operating with the police.
