MANILA, Philippines – A fisherman was killed after another man jumped off a bridge in Cebu Island Wednesday night and landed on top of him.

Aniano Berdin, 30, jumped off the First Mactan-Mandaue Bridge at around 8 p.m. and landed on Danilo Sison, 59, who was spearing for fish under the bridge at the Mactan Channel.

Reports said Sison was underwater and was on his way to the surface when Berdin landed on his head. Doctors said Sison was killed due to the impact while Berdin only sustained minor bruises.

Police said Berdin might be suffering from a mental illness because the latter could not give coherent statements. – report from Carine Asutilla, ABS-CBN News Central Visayas
