Hernales was immediately rushed to the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) after his mother found him sprawled unconscious inside his room last Saturday night.

Cristeta Hernales told Sun.Star SuperBalita said her son was in drunken state when he got home prior to the incident. She suspects that Federico's separation from his live-in partner whom he sired a child was the cause of the suicide attempt.
