MANILA – A Korean national died after falling off GA Towers in Mandaluyong City on Thursday morning.

Jaek Young-han alias "Joshua", 35, fell off from his unit at the 24th floor of the building, according to his girlfriend, Lee Jung-ah.

Lee said she discovered that her boyfriend fell off the building after the lights inside their unit briefly went out. She said Jaek was drunk before the accident occurred.

Power supply in the building went out after Jaek tripped on power lines before landing on the south-bound lane of Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA). The accident snarled traffic in the area.

Lee said she recently had a fight with her boyfriend, but they were able to patch things up last night.

She added that Jaek, a musician, had been jobless for three years.
Investigations are now ongoing to determine whether foul play was involved in the Korean's death. – report from Dennis Datu, dzMM
