Frustrated over AlDub's first date, 8-year-old commits suicide

Probers are puzzled if frustration over the first date of Alden Richards and Maine ‘Yaya Dub’ Mendoza, collectively known as AlDub, drove an 8-year-old child in Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City, to commit suicide.


According to reports gathered from neighbors of the victim identified as alias Paul, the kid often watches the "Kalyeserye" segment on Eat Bulaga which features the phenomenal love team.

Allegedly, the victim got disappointed then manifested a sulky mood when AlDub's first date was aired for just a short period. After a while, members of the family discovered that the boy tried to take his own life inside a room in their residence located at Area B in the said village.

Reports reaching the Quezon City Police District said the father of the victim was surprised to see his son having a seizure while hanging on a beam, with a linen cloth coiled in his neck.

The father immediately put Paul down and quickly brought him to the FEU Medical Center where he was treated and is now in a stable condition.

PO3 Jovelyn Agustin of the QCPD station 6 Women’s Desk, who is holding the case, is investigating the root cause of the child's suicide attempt.
