According to Serrano, Caballero was conducting a spraying operation on a banana plantation owned by the Lapanday Foods Corp. when the plane encountered mechanical trouble, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

But while doing this, Caballero hit a house owned by one Akmad Rasul, injuring Candia in the process. The house was a total wreck.

Both Caballero and Candia were immediately brought to the hospital even as authorities are conducting an investigation on the incident. (MP)
