MANILA, Philippines — A man fell to his death from a condominium-hotel in Manila’s downtown Sta. Cruz district Friday, police said.

Sergeant Manuel Crom of police station 3 said the victim, identified as Jonas Duphanay, 22, of Lagawe, Ifugao, allegedly fell from the seventh floor of Lope de Vega Tower Condo-Hotel where his brother, Jay Bruce, lives in one of the units.

Crom said the building’s security guard found the body of Duphanay at about 6:30 a.m. Friday, a day after he arrived to be with his brother in unit 713.

He said the guard roused Jay Bruce from his sleep to inform him of his brother’s death.

Investigation is ongoing.
