Isang Kababayang OFW ang nagpakamatay sa Saudi Arabia.
A Filipino nurse working in a dental clinic in Saudi Arabia has been found hanged in her Dammam apartment last October 23.
The nurse was identified as Carolyn Comilang, 25, and native of Kabacan, Cotabato. She worked as nurse at Ram Dental Care for just over two months.
A housemate found her hanging with a piece of cloth used as rope tied to her neck.
Comilang reportedly had sleeping problems and consulted a doctor about the ailment. In fact she was to have an appointment on the day she was found dead.
“We have [a] nurse, her name [is] Carolyn Comilang. She killed herself in her accommodation in Dammam. She left a letter for her friend, ‘Goodbye, I’d like to sleep, I am tired’,” said Ahmed Al-Mehaissen, liaisaon officer of Ram Dental Care.
Labor attache Alex Padaen of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office has coordinated with Comilang’s employer for the immediate repatriation of the OFW’s remains.
