OFW Ended His Own Life Because of Depression

An unknown OFW decided to end his own life when he heard bad news from his family.

This man was said to be working in Kabbani Company in Saudi Arabia. On the video, he was called “Alfredo” and the man who was taking the video asked “Anong ginawa niya sa sarili niya” (What did he do to himself?); another man in the video replied “Masaya pa yan kaninang umaga, nagkape pa kami.” (He was happy this morning, we had coffee together)

As of the moment, there are no additional information of the identity of the man or the true reason why he took his own life.

Rest in peace.
