Sibling rivalry in the family is normal. However, if it’s to a point hurting each other gravely, it must stop.
A 22-year-old woman from Aklan was brought to the hospital with a grave injury on May 4. She was declared dead on arrival.
Based on the investigation, the neighbors brought the victim to the Tumbukon Memorial Hospital in Kalibo. Her 14-year-old brother informed them of her bloodied and injured body. Later, it was found out that he caused them.
The police noted that the sibling had a fight. He then hit her with a wood that caused the bleeding.
According to the report by the Inquirer, the boy repeatedly struck his sister using a wood and a bamboo inside their house after she refused to let him in inside their house.
The authorities arrested the boy. He was brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) while the family thinks of the proper legal actions that it must do.
The mother of the siblings had died while the father was outside for work when the incident happened.
