  A 26-year-old man jumped off from the public area at the departure level of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said on Thursday.

“The MIAA commiserates with the family of a 26-year-old male from Bgy. Sto. Nino, South Cotabato, who jumped off from the public area at the departure level of NAIA Terminal 1 and landed at the pavement of the arrival area at noon today,” the MIAA said in a statement.

The MIAA police said a witness saw the man looking bothered “walking back and forth staring blankly at distance.”

Shortly after the witness saw the man go up the ledge and jumped off from the departure area, it added.

A subsequent review of CCTV footage corroborated the statement of the witness, according to the MIAA police.

“The victim was rushed by the MIAA Medical team to Pasay City General Hospital at 1:14 p.m. where he later expired at 2:45 p.m.,” the MIAA added. (Ma. Cristina Arayata)
