A 16-year-old female house helper  died in the hospital after hanging herself from a mango tree at Cristina Homes, Barangay Talon-Talon last Sunday.

Pat, not her real name, was seen hanging by her employer’s son with the use of a yellow nylon rope tied around a tree branch at around 2:30 p.m.

Pat was rushed to the hospital and was placed in Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

However, after several hours the attending phisician declared her dead.

Initial investigation showed that Pat called her brother through mobile phone to ask him to run an errand.

Pat’s brother soon after went to the house of his sister’s employer looking for the latter.

Everyone was aghast when the employer’s son screamed for help, saying that Pat hung herself from the mango tree.

Police are looking into an emotional problem as the cause behind the suicide attempt.  (Dan Toribio)
