THREE men died at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, after they were buried in a landslide in Sitio Candiis, Barangay Sibago, Pinamungajan, Cebu.
Police identified the men as Feliciano Media, 56; Denis Artis, of legal age; and Renerio Cabilin Jr., 40.
The incident was reported to the police station at 6:10 p.m. by Cabilin's father, Renerio Sr.
An initial investigation showed the victims were part of the ongoing construction of Bird Steel Poultry in Candiis. Cabilin and Artis were welding the hole of the steel bar matting of a post when the soil collapsed on them.
Media, who was the contractor, tried to rescue his two employees, but the soil covered him as well.
Other workers retrieved them and rushed them to Carmen Cooper Corporation Hospital, but they were all declared dead. (KAL)
