What a very sad Valentine’s Day-or night, as it happened in SM Megamall.
An unidentified female was said to have jumped to her death at SM Megamall Building B on the evening of Valentine’s Day, February 14.
According to witnesses, she jumped off from the third floor of the mall and smashed down to the basement level, near the center elevator. She was wearing a green T-shirt and a pair of khaki shorts.
While some immediately speculated suicide, some of the witnesses say that she accidentally fell off the ledge. She was with a group of friends and said laughingly “walang forever” before stepping on the ledge, but she lost her balance and fell four floors down.
The incident became a trending topic on social media, as mall goers immediately shared pictures of the incident.
Steven Tan, SVP of SM Supermalls, has released a statement regarding the alleged suicide.
“A woman fell at Building B in SM Megamall. She was immediately rushed to the hospital by the mall personnel. The mall security and the local authorities are currently investigating the matter. We will cooperate for further inquiry.”
