A still unidentified man was believed to have committed suicide due to heartbreak by jumping into the Manila Bay the other day.
The man, aged between 35 and 40, was fished out at the breakwater of the Manila Bay at Pier 6 in Tondo, Manila area.
A security guard identified as Melanio De Jesus, told prober PEMS Donald Panaligan of the Manila Police District-homicide section that he saw the victim jump into the water at 8:58 a.m.
The victim, he said, was all dressed up and did not look like he was just going for a swim.
The guard said he threw the victim a rope attached to a plastic container and told him to grab it so he could get him out of the water. However, the victim merely shouted, ‘Mahal kita Donna!’ and then disappeared.
