Airport ‘culprit’ willing
to face responsibility

The legal counsel of the man shown in the airport CCTV video, whose bags caused a 64-year-old Bacolod resident to trip and suffer serious injuries at the pre-departure area of the Bacolod Silay Airport in Silay City, yesterday apologized for the injuries suffered by the victim.

Rayfrando Diaz II said his client, whom he did not identify, never knew that the injuries suffered by Rosario Hofileña of Barangay Taculing, Bacolod, were that bad, and did not realize that there was a complaint about the incident.

He said his client welcomes the fact that all these things came to light and that he is now informed that the injuries were suffered but were “purely accidental.”.moremoremore

CEB says
sorry for incident

Cebu Pacific yesterday said it hopes that whoever is responsible for the fall of a Bacolod resident at the pre departure area in Bacolod City, that caused her serious injuries, will reach out to her family and provide the assistance needed.

A video that has gone viral on Facebook shows how Rosario Hofilena, 64, of Barangay Taculing, Bacolod, tripped over the bags of another passenger who placed them in the pathway near the X-ray machine in the pre departure area.

The incident caused injury to the left side of Hofilena's face, fractured her left shoulder bones, and dislocated her left shoulder joints that totally disabled her, a complaint she filed before the Regional Trial Court of Bacolod said.moremoremore

SP okays P7.50 tricycle
fare rate in Dumaguete

The Sangguniang Panlungsod of Dumaguete City approved yesterday an amendatory ordinance placing the minimum fare rate of motorcabs-for-hire, or tricycles, at P7.50.

The new fare rate was hiked by one peso from the P6.50 adjustment about two weeks ago and caused a 12-hour transport strike in Dumaguete, when MCH drivers claimed it was not beneficial to them.moremoremore
