$44,000 and an Apple laptop given by Foxconn to compensate for employee's suicide
The night before he died, Sun had sent a text to his girlfriend that read, “Dear, I’m sorry. Go back home tomorrow. I ran into some problems. Don’t tell my family. Don’t contact me. I’m begging you for the first time. Please do it! I’m sorry.” According to the NY Times, Foxconn compensated Mr. Danyong's family by paying them the equivalent of $44,000 and also gave the girlfriend an Apple laptop.

I agree that they should have fired Sun when they knew that he often loses some of the products entrusted to him. However, it's quite hard to believe that this guy jumped from the building when he isn't beaten or being pressured by the company's security guards. I mean, why jump when there's no one pressuring you? Just because of the lost prototype? No. I don't believe with that excuse. There must be somebody pressuring him that caused him to commit suicide.

Thats it you are right, nobody just can kill his self if no any press, considering that he was al healthy "brains" person, since he was working for foxconn, then something else happened! Sorry for him anyway..

I always thought that the Sun falls in the West. ok, ok 1 more.... Back in school we were taught that it would be millions of years before the Sun died.

Seriously, how does communism correlate with this incident? Just can't figure it out myself.

Because it happened in China. Sun was a citizen of the Chinese communist govt. The govt that uses force and intimidation to control its populace. A byproduct of which probably translates into Sun being detained & beaten or by security.

then if a prototype goes missing, it might kill someone as a metior. Ok...flame on, I can't spell meteor...

You people make me sick. A man is dead and you crack jokes about him? Wonder what people will say when YOU are dead. $44,000 and a laptop should be a record for the most unkind and uncaring compensation ever.

They wouldnt say anything or think anything...YOUR DEAD! The reason people are making jokes is the situation and how unreal it would be. Do you honestly think people who didnt even know this guy existed would be saying, "Awwwwww. I feel so bad for him...lets make a Sun Charity!" No....never will they say that. "That sucks...next post" thats what theyll say.

yeah, I really don't care. Will you care when i die? Honestly, crack jokes about me when I die. It's my style!

Am i the only one thinking that that the 4g iPhone is gonna be beast because someone died for it?????

Ouch his GF must be pretty depressed. Not to mention he was kinda careless with the prototypes and the company trusted him. And guards beating him? Wow. And a compensation from Apple wouldn't replace that guy anyway. Might as well fired him in the first place rather than getting bad name huh?
