A Grade 11 student from the Far Eastern University (FEU) died after falling off from the 14th floor of a condominium building in Sampaloc, Manila, the other day.
Victim Ralph John Arcilla, 17, of Room 1402, Residences Tower 1 located at 819 P. Campa St., Sampaloc, Manila, died on the spot.
Prober SPO3 Jonathan Bautista of the Manila Police District-Homicide Section said the incident took place at around 6 p.m. and an investigation is underway to establish if the victim indeed jumped to his death as initial reports show.
Sketchy information said the victim was problematic for failing his Math subject and how his parents would react.
It was learned that before the incident, the victim was visited by his friends. Only moments after they had left, the victim fell from the window of his condo unit.
He was brought to the nearest hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
