Eight people were confirmed dead when a wall of a warehouse building being constructed in Brgy. Ilang-ilang, Guiguinto, Bulacan collapsed Monday afternoon.
According to an Inquirer.net report, seven of the fatalities were construction workers who were resting in the barracks when the warehouse’s north wall collapsed at around 3:30 p.m.
The other casualty was a 12-year-old boy who died while being taken to the Polymedic Hospital in Guiguinto.
The identities of the casualties are still being verified by authorities.
An earlier report on radio DZBB said authorities suspect that there were about 30 construction workers trapped in the rubble.
