October 18, 2018

A former seaman committed suicide by hanging himself inside their house Wednesday in Makati City.

Bernadine Mandladi, 47, of Block 130, Lot 05, 29th Avenue Ext., Bgy. East Rembo, was rushed by his wife to Ospital ng Makati but was declared dead on arrival.

Makati police chief Semior Supt. Rogelio Simon said the victim was last seen alive by his wife drinking beer Tuesday night and after consuming three bottles of Red Horse, he approached his wife and asked for forgiveness for failing to get another contract but she ignored him.

Around 8:30 p.m., the victim’s lifeless body was discovered by house helper Angela Nafa, hanging from the ceiling of their room, prompting her to seek help from her employer.

The victim’s wife told police that her husband was suffering from severe depression for failure to sail again.
