The uniden­ti­fied man, clad in a white t-shirt and check­ered short pants, al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide at the con­do­minium in Barangay Bago Ban­tay at around 11:22 p.m. .

A re­port from the Que­zon City Po­lice District Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion and De­tec­tion Unit said a se­cu­rity guard heard a loud thud in his area. When he went out­side, he saw the vic­tim sprawled on the ground.

The vic­tim was brought to a hos­pi­tal, where he was pro­nounced dead on ar­rival.

Mean­while, a 46-year-old woman re­port­edly com­mit­ted sui­cide by jump­ing from the fourth floor of a mall on North EDSA at around 12:12 p.m. the same day.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as Gir­lie Buan-Mer­cado, a res­i­dent of Navotas City.

Wit­nesses told probers Mer­cado re­moved her san­dals, stood on a monobloc chair and leaped to her death. She landed on a food stall but no other per­sons were hurt.

Se­cu­rity guards brought her to a hos­pi­tal, where she was pro­nounced dead at around 1 p.m.
