Police identified the fatality as Cristina Marie Pagalilauan, who was taking up mass communications and supposed to graduate next year.

The 19-year-old had just finished taking selfies with her classmate, Jonea Mildred Ani, on the roofdeck of Dahlia Tower - Suntrust Parkview Condominium on Natividad Street when she fell early Tuesday evening, January 5.

Ani told the investigator that Pagalilauan decided to climb up the parapet wall as she was unsatisfied with their photos. Ani was busy scanning the pictures on her phone when Pagalilauan fell.

Authorities reportedly ruled out foul play for now.

Before the accident, the two postponed hairdying inside the condo unit of Pagalilauan's boyfriend on the fourth floor.

Pagalilauan invited Ani to go to the rooftop to view the sunset and make it a background for their photos, not knowing that it will be her last time to take selfies.
