Second ‘fall from height’ death at Canary Wharf

A second man has died after ‘falling from height’ this week.

The man, reported to be in his 50s, fell at a shopping centre which is part of the Canary Wharf estate in east London, according to police.  He was pronounced dead at the scene just after 9am on Tuesday morning, after London Ambulance and London’s Air Ambulance had been called to attend.

Canary Wharf Group, the company which owns the property, tweeted:

“We can confirm that there has been a medical incident on the Canary Wharf estate. We are supporting the emergency services in their response.

We can confirm there was a fatality this morning on the Estate. This is subject to an on-going police enquiry. Our thoughts are with the individual’s family at this difficult time. We are unable to comment further at this time.


The incident comes less than 24 hours after a 32-year-old man fell to his death from an escalator at Canary Wharf tube station on Monday.
