Man falls to his death in Catmon town


A MAN fell to his death  from the terrace of his house  in barangay Catmon Daan, Catmon, northern Cebu.

Exequiele Cole Arenillas Sr. was found with a wound in the forehead.

Police said Arenillas had a drinking session with  friends and relatives at home on the evening of New Year’s eve.

The man left his guests to relieve himself but did not return. His relatives thought he  just went to visit  relatives living nearby.

Around 10 a.m. the next day, a two-year-old girl found Arenillas slumped on the ground.

The girl called her  father, who alerted the  police after seeing the unconscious neighbor.

The man may have  lost his balance and fallen from the terrace about  five to six meters above the ground, hitting his head on a protruding bar, said  PO1 Ralph Brasero of the Catmon police.

An autopsy  conducted by Edna Luardo Orlanes, municipal health officer,  showed the head injury was the cause of his death./CORRESPONDENT JOY CHERRY S. QUITO
