MANILA, Philippines – A man died after allegedly jumping off a condominium building in Fairview, Quezon City on Tuesday.

Douglas Dichoso, 31, allegedly jumped off from his unit at the 4th floor of Smile Citihomes in Barangay Kaligayahan.

Rescuers tried but failed to revive Dichoso, who was naked when he fell off the building.

Police also found Dichoso's condominium unit in disarray.

Mary Grace, Dichoso's sister, said she had observed behavioral changes in her brother recently. She said she was about to seek the help of a psychiatrist to understand the condition of her brother, but it was too late.

She added she does not know what had bothered her brother since the latter rarely talked about his problem.

"Hindi siya nago-open up sa akin, pero alam ko meron [siyang problema].Since 'di niya ako kinakausap, kailangan ko ng magtawag ng professional help," she told radio dzMM.

Mary Grace said her brother recently resigned from his job. – report from Johnson Manabat, dzMM
