Ani said he did not see Pagalilauan fall because she was then busy scanning the photos they had just taken.

“All [Ani] remembered was telling her classmate not to climb the wall,” Officer Layugan said.

Officer Layugan said the students took selfies at a safer spot on the deck, but Pagalilauan allegedly asked Ani to move to the parapet wall so they could capture the view and images from below the deck.
