A fatal landslide claimed the lives of three siblings in La Trinidad, Benguet.
According to the report, the fatalities were identified as Nigel, 8, Neckler, 6, and Ayesha Teligo,2. They are residents of Sittio Ubbog, in Barangay Central Ambiong. Initial investigation found that the family was having dinner when the landslide occurred and buried the house.
The parents were alive when they were rescued under the rubble after an hour. The children were rushed to the nearest hospital but were declared dead on arrival.
Local officials said that due to the heavy and nonstop downpour brought by tropical storm Maring, other three individuals were reported missing and at least eight major roads were declared unpassable.
