Homocide charges have been filed against the 30-year-old man who jumped from the old Mandaue-Mactan bridge in the Philippines and fell on a swimmer below who died from the impact. At the Lapu-Lapu City Jail, the jumper said he wasn’t trying to commit suicide last Wednesday, but didn’t feel well and just wanted “to swim”. Read Inquirer News.
