10-Year-Old Boy Hangs Self after Aunt Applied Makeup on His Face and Posted Photos on Facebook

MANILA, Philippines – A family’s joke-filled afternoon turned into nightmare after a boy hanged himself, apparently feeling humiliated that his aunt shared photos on Facebook of him wearing makeup.

According to Manila Police District (MPD) Station 7 Commander Alex Daniel, 10-year-old Jorge Miano was just having fun with his mom Charie and her sister Eva at a little past noon last Monday, April 10 when the incident happened at their home in Building 5, NHA, Dagupan Extension, Tondo.

Possibly bored, Jorge’s aunt Eva applied makeup on the boy’s face and they had a good laugh about it – until she joked that she would post the snapshots on Facebook. Horrified that his aunt would really do it, the boy locked himself up in his room.

PhilStar reported that Eva went on to post the photos on her Facebook account. But the sound of laughter would soon turn to crying when they discovered that the 10-year-old boy had killed himself in his room!

His mom Charie grew concerned when they did not hear anything from Jorge’s room after a few minutes. When the boy didn’t answer after she knocked, Charie forced the door open – and found the boy hanging by a piece of cloth from the door jamb, already dead.

She tried to revive him but failed. They immediately rushed the boy to Tondo Medical Center but he declared dead on arrival.

The distraught family gave their statement to the police over what happened to the boy; but they refused to further cooperate and charge anybody with the crime, saying there was no foul play involved in the incident.

The boy’s aunt Eva has since deactivated her Facebook account but that came a little too late. The boy was already dead because of the bad joke.
