MANILA, Philippines — A man died after jumping and falling into the train tracks of the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) in Makati City on Tuesday afternoon.

The man identified as Mas Sandamon, 21, of Marang Sumisip, Basilan, had been described by the MRT-3 management earlier  as a “street vagrant.” He allegedly jumped and fell on the tracks between the Buendia and Ayala stations.
