Although still unverified, there are reports that the incident was an apparent suicide either due to depression or a heartache. An immediate investigation is now underway.

While there were also initial reports saying that the unidentified male victim was an employee of SM Bacolod and part of the janitorial services, this was denied by the mall management.

In a statement, SM Bacolod confirmed the victim to be a customer.

SM Bacolod's short statement on the incident goes:

“An incident occured in SM City Bacolod involving a male customer. He was immediately attended to and brought to the nearby hospital by our emergency response team and Bacolod City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (DRRMO). An investigation is currently ongoing.”

This isn't the first time that a tragedy occurred inside SM Bacolod. Back in 2016, a male foreigner also fell to his death after jumping from the same 3rd floor of the mall. It was allegedly suicide after the foreigner's Filipina girlfriend broke with him.

Just December last year, a teenager also died inside SM Bacolod. A 17-year-old homosexual jumped from the same third floor building.
