ANTIPOLO, Philippines — Isang binatilyo ang agad isinugod sa ospital matapos mawalan ng malay nang masagasaan sa Mambugan, Antipolo, Rizal.

Ang biktima na nakilalang si Erwin Morales ay nagtamo ng pinsala sa ulo nang mabangga ng isang towing truck.

Sa inisyal na imbestigasyon ng mga otoridad, nawalan ng preno ang truck na minamaneho ni Joel Maraña habang bumibiyahe papuntang Pasay City.

Sa pag-aakalang walang madidisgrasya, agad niya itong ibinangga sa isang basurahan, subalit lingid sa kanyang kaalaman ay naroon at nangangalkal pala ng basura ng mga oras na iyon ang biktima.

Hindi naman makapaniwala ang driver na masisira ang preno ng kanyang minamanehong truck dahil bago pa lamang ito.

Sa ngayon ay nasa kustodiya na ng pulisya ang suspek. (Gary Perez & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines—The Light Rail Transit 2 (LRT-2) East Extension will begin operations on July 6, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced Thursday  (July 1) at the inauguration of the project.

The transportation department, in a statement, said commuters will now experience a swifter, comfortable and convenient train ride experience, as the travel time from and to Recto, Manila and Antipolo, Rizal will just be 40 minutes from the current three hours via land transport.

The LRT-2 Extension also aims to reduce traffic along Marcos Highway, especially in Marikina, Pasig and Antipolo.

Trains on the line running from Recto Station in Manila to the Antipolo Station have also been increased to eight from the previous five trains that run from Recto Station to the Santolan Station.

The rail line can now accommodate an additional 80,000 passengers daily, further increasing the rail line’s average daily passenger capacity from 240,000 to 320,000 passengers.

Moreover, at least 1,800 jobs were also generated during the construction of the LRT-2 East Extension Project. The DOTr also projects that 170 rail personnel will be employed to work at the two new stations. AAC

MANILA, Philippines — The Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) has set limited tourism activities in the National Capital Region (NCR) Plus Bubble.

Based on the IATF resolution, transportation to and from Metro Manila, Cavite, Rizal, Laguna, and Bulacan relating to tourism is prohibited. This is included in the non-essential activities set by the agency.

This gave several vacationers no choice but to cut short their trip and return home.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Spokesperson Goddes Hope Libiran, however, clarified individuals outside the NCR Plus Bubble who are returning home will be allowed to enter.

Ang pag-uwi sa kani-kanilang mga tirahan ay considered as essential travel. Kung kinakailangan, magpakita lamang ng proof of residence, ID o any document showing that you are indeed a resident ng area na iyong pupuntahan para wala pong problema (Returning to their homes is considered as essential travel. If needed, just present a proof of residence, ID, or any document that you are indeed a resident of that area you’re planning to go to so there won’t be any problem),” she said.

Meanwhile, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said hotels and airline companies already agreed to ease their rebooking and refund policies for their customers.

DOT Usec. Benito Bengzon said tourism activities in MGCQ areas are still allowed.

Ang mga areas na under Modified GCQ eh pwede pa rin po ang (Areas under the Modified GCQ are still allowed to have) tourism activities for as long as the local executives agreed to reopen the destinations,” he said. – AAC (with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)
