German Hotel Tycoon Chokes to Death on Steak from His Own Resto
The incident took place at the five-star Atlantic Hotel in Hamburg – used extensively in the James Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies” – where the hotel tycoon was dining.
According to reports, Bock ordered room service at his suite where he ate his last fillet steak, together with a salad and fries.
The police said the staff who saw him earlier in the hotel bar reported that Bock felt a little unwell, so he rested to his rooms. The next morning, chambermaids found his body in the room. The Hamburg police later issued a statement confirming he had choked to death on the steak.
The said room in Atlantic Hotel was said to have previously been occupied by celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Andre Agassi, and Placido Domingo.
Aside from the Atlantic Hotel, Bock also owns other luxury hotels including the Bristol in Berlin, the Gravenbuch in Frankfurt, and the Taschenbergpalais in Dresden.
