MANILA, Philippines — A boy allegedly committed suicide in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro on Tuesday.
The mother of the boy, aged 10, found him hanging from the ceiling of their home in Barangay Bubog at around 7:30 p.m. with a length of rope looped around his neck. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the San Jose District Hospital.
Prior to the incident, the boy asked money to play computer games at a shop, but the mother refused.
“The refusal led to the alleged suicide,” Superintendent Imelda Tolentino, Mimaropa police spokesperson, said.
