A 54-year-old man hanged himself to death in Sinubongon Monday, while a woman landed in the hospital after she slashed her wrist in Cabatangan last Tuesday.

Police identified the suicide as Ricardo Anaredo y Fausto, a farmer of Purok 1B, Sinubong.

Anaredo’s wife Amy told the police that around 3 p.m. their son Roberto found his father dead from hanging.

Police said Anaredo used a nylon rope in making a loop on his neck that was connected to the upper part of the door jamb.

Amy told the police that her husband had attempted to kill himself several times for unknown reason.

In a similar incident, a 21-year-old woman, whose identity has been withheld, was rushed to the hospital for treatment after she sustained a slash wound in the left wrist.

Police said the woman, a native of Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay, tried to end her life because she found out her boyfriend has another woman.

The victim was placed under observation after undergoing treatment. – Dan Toribio Jr.
