Briton plunges to death from Mid-Levels apartment tower

A 31-year-old British man fell to his death from a Mid-Levels high-rise in an apparent suicide.

Thomas Dudley Nelson was found Thursday morning by his Singaporean girlfriend on a slope at the back of St. Joan Court in Macdonnell Road.

He left no suicide note and police have ruled out foul play, according to Apple Daily.

Surveillance camera footage shows him leaving his rented 13th-floor flat and going to the 20th floor of the building.  

He was found unconscious after a brief search by his girlfriend. Paramedics later certified him dead at the scene. 

Nelson worked as an asset manager in a finance company and was due to start a new job.

His online resume says he graduated with a business degree from the University of the West of England in Bristol before coming to Hong Kong in 2006. 

On Wednesday, he checked himself into Queen Mary Hospital complaining of dizziness after rugby practice at the Hong Kong Cricket Club where he was a member.

Police investigations are continuing.
