A MAN who was attacked by a group of motorcycle-for-hire (habal-habal) drivers after he allegedly harassed a girl died on his way to the hospital around 7 p.m. Sunday, August 28, 2022, in Carmen town, northern Cebu.

The victim was about to be transported to the hospital by municipality's rescue personnel when he jumped off the ambulance and landed on the concrete pavement with his head first.

The victim still managed to run for several meters toward the roadside but eventually fell after he bumped into the concrete wall along Sitio Acacia, Barangay Cogon East, Carmen.

Police believed the victim's death might have been caused by the blunt injury on his head.

Police Major Eric Gingoyon, chief of Carmen Police Station, said they are still trying to establish the identities of the victim and the persons who mauled him. (BBT, TPT)
