• Landslide buries laborer in UP Baguio


    BAGUIO CITY: A laborer digging a large hole at a construction site at the University of the Philippines – Baguio dormitory building was pinned down by loose soil on Tuesday. Cordillera police spokesman, Supt. Cherry Fajardo, said that Arthur Danis of Angeles City, Pampanga, was dug out after an hour-and-a-half and died at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center 15 minutes after he was brought there by rescuers. Rescue and retrieval operatives said the soil caved-in while Danis and another worker were digging. Danis’ coworker was able to run away from danger. Last week, at least four laborers cheated death when another cave-in occurred at another construction site in Leonila Hill here, while another laborer died at a school construction site in Hungduan, Ifugao.
