Phl Embassy: Pinay Who Jumped in KL Airport Flyover Safe, Recuperating

The Philippine Embassy in Kuala Lumpur said today that a Filipina who appeared to have jumped from a flyover at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA 2) is safe and is recuperating from her injuries.

"News have been circulating in social media about a Filipina who allegedly jumped off a flyover at the KLIA2. The Embassy wishes to clarify that the said individual is safe and is recuperating from her injuries at a nearby hospital. There is no truth to the news that she died," the Embassy said.

"In fact, Embassy representatives have visited her at the hospital, where she is recuperating from a broken leg and other related injuries. She was also able to call her family in the Philippines during that time. We are extending the necessary assistance for her, including her repatriation from the Philippines when she is already fit for travel," it added.

The Filipina said to have jumped from a height of five meters at the KLIA 2 last June 9, where several passerby saw the incident and immediately called for help.

"Because of the sensitivity of her condition, we would like to request that we allow her time to rest and recover from the incident. We also ask that netizens exercise caution about sharing information in social media, especially on cases like these," the Embassy stated.
