LRT Suicide: Woman Jumps to Die in LRT EDSA-Taft Station

LRT Suicide: Woman Jumps to Die in LRT EDSA-Taft Station

An unidentified woman ages between 50 and 60 apparently commited suicide by jumping in front of an approaching Light Rail Transit (LRT) train in Pasay City on Thursday morning, August 30. She died on the spot after suffering severe head injury.

Light Rail Transit Autrhority (LRTA) Spokesperson Hernando Cabrera said the woman jumped on the tracks of the LRT-1 in EDSA-Taft station at around 5:50 a.m.

"It was really a case of suicide. It was seen on the video. CCTV shows the woman jumped into the tracks right after the platform guard walked by her," Cabrera said.
Her body was removed from the tracks shortly before 9 a.m. following an investigation by Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO).

The train, which came from its station in Baclaran, also suffered from a technical glitch after its operator stopped it upon seeing the woman jumped off the platform.

The accident also caused some delays in the train operation but full operations resumed around 9:40 a.m.
