DAGUPAN CITY -- A 20-year-old graduating student allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself inside their house in Brgy. Bonuan Boquig in Dagupan City, Pangasinan on Monday, authorities said.
Quenard dela Torre was a graduating BS Marine Transportation student.
His mother, Cecilia, said she doesn't know what pushed her son to commit suicide.
She said her son was a good student and got good grades.
She said he even helped her collect garbage to earn allowance money.
Cecilia said that her son mentioned that a teacher humiliated him because he can't pay for his on-the-job training.
However, Dr. Joseph Toledo, the school's vice-president for administration, said Dela Torre was included in their list of graduating students, and on-the-job training is not a requirement for graduation.
Toledo said they will investigate the incident. -- report from Melanie Heng, ABS-CBN News North Central Luzon
