From the UK Evening Standard:
Colin Birch, 44, the former assistant vice-president of Deutsche Bank, had ordered the escorts to kick away a step ladder on which he was standing with a noose round his neck tied to a tree.
The married father of two had reassured the women he was wearing a safety harness that would save his life, an inquest heard today.
On his orders, the pair walked away laughing without looking back.
The question at this point would be, prophetic or just weird?
