A dzBB update revealed that the rider was conscious but having difficulty in communicating due to the injuries and shock he just had.

Macasaet suffered broken ribs, from a 20 feet or so fall. His head was protected by the helmet he had on.

Perhaps, this is more than an immediate call for the authorities to really act on the prevailing safety conditions of the flyover and skyway facilities in the metro. If the protective railings were strong and high enough to prevent falls like these, the damages to human life and properties could be lesser.

Cases of vehicles falling off the skyway
Sometime in March, a shuttle bus fell off the skyway due to loss of control.

In December last year, a Don Mariano bus unit fell of the skyway as well, where more than 20 people died.

This is not the first case of a motorcycle falling off the skyway. In 2012, a motorcycle ride fell off Edsa Tramo flyover into a track of the Metro Rail Transit 3.
