MANILA, Philippines — A woman driven by jealousy attempted suicide in the municipality of Magdalena in the province of Laguna early Thursday morning but was saved by her neighbors, a police official said.
The 35-year-old drank pesticide in Banaan village around 10:30 a.m. because she suspected her husband of seeing another woman, said Magdalena police chief Senior Inspector Raul Sandoval.
But the victim was spotted by neighbors and rushed to the Laguna Provincial Hospital where, as of posting time, she is in stable condition, Sandoval said.
Sandoval said police records showed the woman had reported to police last August 6 that her husband was allegedly having an affair.
It was also in Magdalena where a woman killed her three young children and then herself with toilet bowl cleanser on September 9.
