Chicken meal makes man come down from billboard

A MAN believed to be in his 40s allegedly caused heavy traffic in downtown Cebu City for attempting to jump from a billboard on Borromeo St., Cebu City past 7 a.m. today.

It took policemen and firefighters almost two hours before the man went down safely.
