    A total of 10 jumpers this year and 2 survived their jump off buildings.

    This firm Foxconn makes iPads, iPhones

    I'm wondering could the pressure to be perfect on the job be an underlining factor to these suicide deaths, I'm wondering, I just don't know?

    It really is very sad indeed, but there is at least some truth in the defense that the company have used when critisized about this - they have nearly half a million emplyees - so while 10 in a year sounds very high, it actually isn't very different from the average that you would expect from any group that large.
