Another Filipina has taken her own life after waiting for a repatriation flight back to Manila.

A Filipina crew member aboard a cruise ship docked in Barbados died by taking her own life, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin said.

The case is the second suicide of Filipino migrant workers in recent weeks.

The Filipina was identified as Mariah Jocson, 28. She took her own life onboard Harmony of the Seas where crew detained are waiting.

It was also recently reported that a Filipina household service worker also died of suicide at a Philippine Overseas Labor and Office shelter in Lebanon.

“RIP Ms. Mariah Jocson took her life onboard Harmony of the Seas where crew detained awaiting PH repeatedly repatriation. Second suicide. We are tartly reminded that Filipino resilience is no excuse to stretch them to breaking point. Di sila goma; tao sila,” Locsin posted on Twitter.

Citing a local report, Jocson was employed as an assistant waiter aboard the ship that is currently docked in Bridgetown Port in Barbados.

She was last seen going to her room at about 3am on June 9.

“A muster call was made and it was discovered that she was not present. A check of her room was made by ship security and her body was discovered on the balcony of her room. A medical doctor pronounced her dead,” the report noted, adding that police investigation is ongoing.
