Mechanic hangs self near Gusa’s intersection

Correspondent .

A MOTORCYCLE mechanic hanged  himself on a tree near the busy “Galaxy” intersection in Barangay Gusa, this city, yesterday morning.

SPO3 Ronnie Donasco of the Agora police identified the suicide as 26-year-old Buchard Arsenio a.k.a. Toto of Bacusanon, Pangantucan, Bukidnon.

Arsenio, who lived here at his uncle’s house in Kolambog, Lapasan, was found by passersby hanging on a tree near the junction at around 6 am.

Charldon Arsenio, the victim’s cousin, told the police the suicide decided to stay at his uncle’s house six months ago, and worked as a motorcycle mechanic near Cogon market.

“Last week, ako na siyang gakamatikdan nga masulob-on ug sigi lang tanga. Akong gi-invite maligo dagat wa miuban. Ambot kaha unsa iyang problema,” he said, adding that his cousin was the type of person who kept his problems to himself.

He said it was clear to him that his cousin was depressed.

It was learned that a day before the suicide, Arsenio tried to borrow money from a fellow worker who declined to give him any.

Meanwhile, a man who had just attended the birthday party of his grandchild, died when the motorcycle he was driving crashed into a road barricade in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental, on Sunday night.

Sgt. Hadji Pabualan identified the accident victim as 54-year-old Andrew Arcenal.

Arcenal suffered a fatal wound to his head that resulted in his death. He was rushed to a hospital in Jasaan but was declared dead shortly after.

There is ongoing road construction in the area where the accident happened.

Pabualan said the road construction project has neither warning signs nor reflectorized signages.

Pabualan said Arcenal did not wear a helmet.

“Murag kusog gyud iyang dagan kay wala man siya naka-brake,” Pabualan said.

Arcenal, Pabualan said, was even dragged 20 meters away from the point of impact, indicating that he did not notice the road barricade.

Arcenal was a bodyguard of the late Jasaan mayor Gregorio Po.
