Rescue in Ortigas Center

Friday, February 19, 2010

Four workers painting the water tank of a building in Ortigas Center yesterday were overcome with the smell and fumes of the paint and fell several feet below into the Septic Tank and were trapped for hours. Some were unconscious. I was on my way home when I saw all these vehicles and people crowded around the building.

The water tank of the building was hit by the construction beside it last September at the same the typhoon Ondoy flooded Metro Manila. The residents of that building went without water for 3 weeks. They had to get water using pails and whatever they had from a second floor faucet which got water directly from the pipes not the water tank. Imagine going up and down several times a day with pails to get water for three weeks! The contractor was slow in admitting their fault and doing something about it.

Well apparently it's just not that they got around the painting of the water tank. Now this happens. Fortunately, the rescue efforts were successful and after being trapped for several hours, they finally got out sometime after 7PM.

I hope everything turned out well to those four men! I can't imagine myself having no water for three weeks... xoxo
