Man goes missing after falling into manhole
MANILA, Philippines – A 38-year-old man accidentally fell into a manhole near his eatery shop on Friday night in Diliman, Quezon City.
Rescuers are trying to locate Gomer Beltrano, who went through the manhole and into a 20-foot drainage canal located along Sgt. Esguerra Street.
Beltrano and his companions were reportedly pulling out a piece of wood wedged between the concrete manhole covers.
The concrete cover on which Beltrano was stepping on suddenly flipped over, causing the victim to fall.
“Ang nangyari ay pag-apak niya sa takip na iyon ay nalaglag po siya,” said his sister Criselda.
Beltrano was closing down his eatery shop when the incident happened.
