A middle-aged man fell on Friday morning from his office on the 17 floor of Delta House building in Westlands.
Police say the man landed on the balcony of the second floor of the building but did not die on impact. He wailed as he was being rushed to hospital, but was declared dead on arrival at Aga Khan hospital
The deceased was a senior staff at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC Kenya) whose office is located in the building.
The firm identified the deceased as Stephen Mumbo.
Kilimani OCPD Michael Muchiri confirmed that the man succumbed to injuries at Aga Khan hospital.
“Investigations over the matter have started and we shall get to the bottom of the matter,” he said.
A crowd of curious onlookers milled around the building as they watched the man being rushed to hospital.
Mr Ibrahim Juma, who witnessed the incident, said that he heard a loud scream as the man came down before landing on the balcony.
“It is then that people rushed and helped him up before rushing him to hospital,” said Mr Juma.
Two years ago, a man had plunged from 15th floor of Pension Towers, on Loita Street, where he had visited his relatives.
