Former Senator Lito Lapid last night rushed to the Chuzon Supermarket in Porac, Pampanga to look into the situation of his “kabalens” who were trapped in the collapsed building.
One of those trapped, whose foot had to be amputated on site, was done by a campaign volunteer of Lapid, Doctor Noel Lacsamana.
Lapid was one of those who immediately arrived at the tragic site.
The Chuzon supermarket collapsed in the aftermath of the strong earthquake yesterday afternoon, trapping people inside.
Five persons have been reported killed, but officials fear the numbers may still go up , as rescue operations continue.
