MANILA – A man was wounded after jumping off the walkway near the Metro Rail Transit (MRT-3) on Thursday morning.

Rommel Hubes, 25, jumped off the walkway at around 8:00 a.m. He sustained leg fractures and head wounds.

Ludy Borriones, Hubes' mother, said her son had been suffering from depression.

She said that she and her son were actually on their way to Pasay City General Hospital for a check-up when the attempted suicide occurred.

Borriones noted that her family's eviction from their house is one of the causes of Hubes' depression. – reports from Jerome Lantin, ABS-CBN News; and Eric Dastas, dzMM
