MANILA, Philippines – A teenage girl caught several people’s attention when she climbed on top of the MRT Kamuning station roof in Quezon City past noon Wednesday.

MRT security guard Bernard Alejandro said the 16-year-old girl climbed the roof at around 12 :40 p.m., but was later convinced to go down.

The girl, who appeared to be mentally-ill, did not sustain any injuries.

Alejandro said the girl told them that she came from Samar and has no relatives in Manila.

He said they will place the girl under the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). – report from Robert Mano, dzMM
