A MAN was reportedly killed after falling from the 26th floor of a condominium building at the corner of Taft Avenue and Vito Cruz in Manila Friday afternoon.
The man landed on the power station of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 1's Vito Cruz station, LRT Authority spokesman Hernando Cabrera said.
In posts on his Twitter account, Cabrera said the man was "confirmed dead" and described him as a "Chinese (or) Korean-looking male."
However, Cabrera said the LRT-1's operation was not affected.
"Bumagsak sa roof ng power station, operation ng LRT1 not affected (The male fell on the power station, the LRT-1's operation was not affected)," he added.
Cabrera also said this was not the first time as a person fell from the building and onto the LRT facility in 2007. (JK/Sunnex)
