(BBC) — An intern at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in the UK died of epilepsy, which could have been triggered by “working so hard”, an inquest has heard.

German-born Moritz Erhardt, 21, was found dead at his student residence in London in August, a week before completing his internship.

He had reportedly worked all night several times in the period before his death, which sparked a debate about student working conditions.
