Young Boy Drowns After Friends Pressured Him to Jump in a River

They urged him to jump into the water. But when he was drowning, no one even tried to save him.

A A A

A 12-year-old boy from the Philippines named Jhayron Malayao died due to drowning. The tragic incident occurred shortly after his friends persuaded him to jump into the deep waters of Pasig River on Thursday, February 18th, at around five in the afternoon.

In the video posted by Bartome Hadikain on Facebook, Malayao can be seen standing on the edge of Jones Bridge with four of his friends. The voice behind the camera was urging them to jump—head first—into the water. Then, another boy spoke, encouraging the group to race.

One by one, the boys plunged, except for Malayao. With four of them already swimming under the bridge, they coaxed their friend to jump. One of them even said he’ll catch him, but he hesitated.

Malayao then re-emerged on the screen. He transferred to a lower section of the bridge to join his friends.

The voice behind the camera continued to prompt the boy to jump. Malayao seemed scared; it appeared that he didn’t know how to swim. Unfortunately, the boy gave in to peer pressure and finally dove.

Malayao emerged for a second or two then he went under. Sadly, he never came back up. His friends were then pressing each other again, this time, to help their drowning friend. But until the video ended, no one came to his rescue.

It was the last time they saw him.

Employees from the Manila International Container Terminal found the boy’s corpse floating in the river the following day. It was drifting along the area of Tondo, Manila.

These Women Set The Best Example On Why You Should Read Product Labels

Not reading product labels can land you at the hospital.

Here’s one of those stories that will literally make you confused. You don’t know if you would laugh or be sad about it.

A woman in Eastern Europe was sent to the Emergency Room at the local hospital after mistakenly using a can of builder’s foam for a regular hair mousse. The woman looked so apathetic at the ER room while waiting for the hospital’s medical staff to attend to her bizarre looking hair.

The woman looked like someone who just came from a festival in some tropical country with a bouquet of flowers being put on her head. It really looked funny but she was definitely not laughing, and nobody blames her for that.
