OFW from Abu Dhabi found dead on Gulf Airplane's Toilet

I just watched the news about an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) from Abu Dhabi who was found dead on Gulf Airplane's toilet just before the airplane was about to land. Here's the news I've found online.

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATE 3)—A Filipino found dead in the toilet of a Gulf Air plane Wednesday has been identified by the airline’s local station manager as Marlon Cueva, 36, of Lubang Island, Mindoro Occidental. He was an electrician who worked in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Pasay City police chief Senior Supt. Napoleon Cuaton said Cueva was found hanging inside the toilet at the rear of the plane by a flight steward around 11:20 a.m., shortly after Gulf Air flight GF 154 from Bahrain landed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1.

Cueva apparently committed suicide, NAIA 1 General Manager Octavio Villalina told Radyo Inquirer, although it was not clear how he took his own life inside the toilet.

Cuaton told reporters, “The injuries seem self-inflicted. He probably used a clothing article to hang himself. There were no ropes or wires. We will leave it to our forensics experts to establish the suicide. The lavatory was intact.”

Pictures of the scene showed Cueva slumped on the aisle leading to the right lavatory where he was left by a Filipino nurse who tried to revive him but failed.

Cueva wore a black jacket and a blue shirt.

The police had yet to take the corpse out of the plane as of 3 p.m. Cueva’s wife, Vilma, and two other female relatives were waiting at the NAIA medical office.

“I don’t know why he did this. There’s no reason at all. We wonder why he would do this,” she said before asking mediamen to go away and give her privacy.

Gulf Air station manager Khaled Ahmed Abdulrahman apologized to some 300 passengers waiting for plane’s return trip. The plane was supposed to leave NAIA at 12:30 p.m.
