CAMP GEN. SIMEON A. OLA, Legazpi City, June 21 (PNA) — Fellow workers failed in their efforts to save a 56-year-old bulldozer operator who got buried under the earth of a quarry site in Barangay Agdangan, Baao, Camarines Sur, which collapsed on Saturday afternoon.
A police report said victim Nestor Villanueva, an employee of EPL General Construction and Supply, was busy working at about 2:20 p.m. when the portion of the mountain where he was quarrying suddenly collapsed and buried him alive.
It was already about 10:00 p.m. when his fellow workers came to the place after Villanueva failed to return to their office and found him and the bulldozer covered by earth.
They immediately conducted a rescue and recovery operation but Villanueva was no longer alive.
The report said the victim was alone at the quarry site. (PNA)
