Welcome to Metro Manilawhere buses smash into MRT posts, young pandesal vendors are suspected of lying, snatchers hide inside sewers, and holdapers make money off students' tuition fees, among other kahindik-hindik incidents!

Metro Manila

And just so you know, all of these happened in the past week. Scroll down to relive these gruesome (and some good) events!


Did you hear about the snatcher who jumped inside a sewer in Sgt. Esguerra Avenue in Quezon City in order to escape the barangay tanod chasing him? It took the authorities two hours to catch the suspect inside the drainage area. "Iniisip din namin yung sitwasyon ng tao eh...baka kung anong mangyari sa kanya dahil sa amoy," recalls a tanod. Said snatcher had a partner-in-crime, but he was contained by a bunch of witnesses early on. Good job, we guess.

Remember the young pandesal vendor who was allegedly robbed by an unidentified suspect the other week? Apparently, some police officials now doubt the authenticity of the boy's statement. "There is a tendency na naiiba na yung sagot dahil tinatanong nila ng paulit-ulit," explains DSWD officer Milagros Sampang. If the kid is indeed lying, don't you think he would have caved in by now? Get your acts together, officers!

What about the dump truck that collided with an electric post earlier today, causing power outage to over a thousand homes in Payatas and Commonwealth in QC? "Nawalan ng preno ang trak tulad ng mga ibang naaaksidente," explains ABS-CBN News reporter Francis Faulve. "Kaya't minabuti na lang ng drayber na isalpok ang kanyang minamanehong trak sa poste." Guess the ripple effect works both ways!

Time for some good news. Earlier this week, a 58-year-old homeless construction worker named Leonardo Pango returned a lost wallet that apparently belongs to a barangay captain. Here's the best part: Despite the huge wad of cash (P41,000) inside, Leonardo did not take a single peso. In exchange for his heroics, he was promised employment and a cash reward by the local government. Somebody give this guy an award!

Here's another bummer: Mary the Queen College Quezon City just lost a whopping amount of moolah (P500,000) after a bunch of criminals robbed the school's cashier. "Tinutukan pa ako ng isa, hinahanap sa akin yung pera," reveals one employee. "Kinalkal po nila ang mga bag ng faculty members, tapos umalis na agad." As of press time, police officials are still investigating whether this is an inside job or not. This is a new level of low!

Finally, those raging bus drivers are at it again! Yesterday, a couple of air-conditioned buses collided and plowed into an MRT post in EDSA-Ortigas, injuring 12 passengers and causing major traffic in the process. Oh my gulay, somebody please put an end to this stupidity!!!
