Moritz Erhardt, a 21-year-old business administration student, has been found dead in a flat in Bethnal Green, as he came close to finishing a seven-week internship with the Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

Reports are claiming that in the weeks leading up to his death he was working insanely long hours in the investment banking division, and his story shows just how dangerous the pressure to excel can be.
