Facebook employees rattled after fellow colleague commits suicide


A guy passed away at Facebook headquarters in California on Thursday in an apparent suicide, police said.

The male jumped from the fourth flooring of a building, according to a news release from the city of Menlo Park. He was noticable dead at the scene, cops stated, shortly after the 11:30 a.m. call.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed the guy worked for the Silicon Valley-based company.

” We were saddened to find out that a person of our employees died at our Menlo Park head office previously today,” a spokesperson stated in a statement emailed to USA TODAY. “We’re cooperating with cops in their investigation and providing assistance to staff members. While the family is being informed, we have not information to share. We want to supply an update when we learn additional details from police.”

An examination is continuous and no nasty play is suspected, cops stated.
