A man fell from the roof of an overpass near 168 Mall in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, Tuesday afternoon and landed on a woman who watched the incident, ABS-CBN News reported.
In the video, three rescuers tried to grab the man who challenged the earlier to leave him alone by trying to hit them with a belt and another object on the top of the roof. After being initially grabbed, the man tried to escape from them and moved backward before he fell to the ground and rolled off the roof of overpass, falling about several feet and landed on a woman spectator.
Both the man and the woman bystander were seriously injured and transported to the hospital.
The man, believed to be suffering from a mental illness, stayed on the roof of the said overpass for almost 12 hours before he fell to the ground.
During the incident, some spectators began yelling at the man; some people in the vicinity urged the rescuers to gram him the right way to avoid accident.
When the man fell, people began yelling “He fell! He fell!”
Police had closed the road because of the man’s threats to jump off the overpass.
