Google engineers keep taking their own lives and company won’t discuss it: Report
By JD Heyes // May 09, 2023

Another Manhattan-based Google engineer has reportedly killed himself in a second incident involving the tech giant in as many months.

The tragic incident occurred last week when a senior software engineer reportedly jumped to his death from the 14th floor of Google's headquarters in Chelsea. The authorities have not yet revealed the man's identity as they are still in the process of informing his family, the Hindustan Times reported.

"According to police sources, multiple 911 calls were made after an unconscious person was found lying on the ground near a building on West 15th Street, opposite the 15-story Art Deco building. The police rushed to the spot and found the man unconscious. He was immediately taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead," the report said.

"Investigators found handprints on the ledge of a 14th-floor open-air terrace, leading them to believe that the man had jumped from there. However, they have not found any suicide note or video of the incident," the report added.

The incident occurred just a couple of months after the death of another Google employee, Jacob Pratt, who was also a software engineer working at the Manhattan headquarters. Pratt was found hanging in an apartment in Chelsea on February 16th at the age of 33, in what appeared to be a suicide.

As of now, Google has not released any statement regarding the incident. However, the twin tragedies have once again highlighted the importance of addressing mental health in the tech industry.

Meanwhile, concerns over Google's commitment to privacy continue.

The tech behemoth has access to a vast amount of personal data from its users. While Google assures its users that their privacy is a top priority, there are still many concerns about how the company uses and protects this data.

Every search, click, and even voice command is tracked and stored by Google. This data is then used to personalize ads, improve search results, and create a profile of each user. While this may seem like a harmless practice, it raises concerns about how this data is used and who has access to it.

Google's data collection practices also raise concerns about government surveillance and the potential for abuse. In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) had been collecting data from Google and other tech companies as part of their surveillance program.

There are also concerns about the security of user data stored by Google. While the company has implemented several security measures, such as two-factor authentication and encryption, there have been several instances where data breaches have occurred. In 2018, it was revealed that a bug in Google+ had exposed the personal information of millions of users, including names, email addresses, and occupations. Google+ eventually went away but the company's data collection continues to this day.

Finally, there are concerns about the monopolistic power of Google and the impact this has on user privacy. With such a dominant position in the search engine market, Google has the ability to dictate how information is accessed and presented to users. This can lead to a lack of diversity in search results and limit access to alternative viewpoints. Additionally, with so much personal data at its disposal, Google has the power to create and shape public opinion in ways that may not be in the best interest of its users, and in fact, the company has been credibly accused of manipulating the outcomes of elections.

While Google claims to have made efforts to address privacy concerns, there are still many issues that need to be addressed. And the amount of personal data collected by the company, lack of transparency, potential for government surveillance, security breaches, and monopolistic power all raise significant concerns about user privacy.

Now, apparently, the company has a 'suicide' problem, too.
