The suicide attempt occurred Thursday but news of the incident is only now spreading on social media. The identity of the UST Commerce student is unknown. There seems to be a news blackout of the incident.

According to reports, the female Commerce student jumped from the 4th floor of the St. Raymund building and landed on the roof of the Artlets Student Council. She was immediately rushed to the UST Hospital. her condition is still unknown at this time.

This is the second case of attempted suicide by a student this week. Earlier, it was reported that a Grade 8 student at De La Salle Zobel in Ayala Alabang jumped from a building inside the campus. He survived and is now being treated of his injuries reportedly at Asian Hospital.

According to social media posts which have since been erased, bullying was the cause of the suicide attempt.
