Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. said resilience isn’t an excuse to treat Filipinos badly after a female overseas worker committed suicide aboard a cruise ship docked in Barbados.

Locsin tweeted that the worker, 28-year-old Mariah Jocson, took her life aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas cruise ship.

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 Mariah Jocson took her life onboard Harmony of the Seas where crew detained awaiting PH repeatedly rescinded repatriation.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

Locsin said Jocson had been stuck inside the cruise ship due to the suspension of repatriation flights back to the Philippines.

“I know our quarantine facilities are jam-packed; just don’t know why,” he said.

According to the online news site Loop News Barbados, Jocson was employed as an assistant waiter of the cruise ship.
