Did Apple’s iPhone manufacturing contractor in China Foxconn torture a 25 year old employee who lost one of sixteen 4G iPhones he was entrusted with causing him to commit suicide by jumping from a 12 story building to his death?

That’s what Apple insider says in this article.

Apple insider links to the translation of a Chinese language newspaper that indicates videotape documenting the incident exists.  Apple has apologized for the incident.

No word yet on whether there will be consequences for Foxconn.
