A 65-year old woman is cautioning the public against a mentally disabled person who usually sits along the stairs on the Ayala side of the pedestrian overpass along CM Recto Avenue in Cagayan de Oro City. This following an incident yesterday, February 17, wherein the said individual grabbed her legs as she was descending down the stairs causing her to lose balance, fall down and hit her head hard on the side grill. She almost collapsed and fortunately, people brought her down the stairs and a concerned citizen brought her to nearby Northern Mindanao Medical Center where a CT Scan later revealed negative result.
In her Facebook post, netizen Esmaelita B. Japos Mesias said the man pretended to be asleep. She thanked the Lord for protecting her and the negative result of the CT Scan. She added that she could have fallen down the stairs if not for another mentally disabled person (shown below in yellow shirt) who blocked her path.
“THANK YOU SO MUCH LORD FOR PROTECTING ME!
