Man in critical condition after slashing own belly with plain sheet

A man from Misamis Oriental ended up in critical condition after he went up the roof of his house to slash his own belly using a plain sheet.

Danilo Sabuga, a resident of Barangay Tup-on in Medina town, was brought to the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) in Cagayan de Oro City on Friday following an attempt to take his own life.

He reportedly suffered two big cuts in the abdomen.

A news report from SunStar says Sabuga's wife was shocked. She was outside their residence when her husband climbed the roof and attempted to commit suicide using a thin metal sheet.

She said her husband has mentioned often that someone wanted to kill him.

It is believed that anxiousness might have driven Sabuga to try to put an end to his life.
