Serendra condo occupant passes away

The occupant of the unit where an explosion took place in Serendra last May has passed away five weeks after the blast.
 
Angelito San Juan died of organ failure shortly after midnight Thursday at the St. Luke’s Hospital in Bonifacio Global City, his counsel said.
 
Reports have earlier quoted lawyer Raymond Fortun as saying that his client is in a serious condition, having developed complications.
 
San Juan faced constant threat of infection and pneumonia, and had to undergo blood infusions due to low hemoglobin levels, Fortun said.
 
The 63-year-old, who suffered burns all over his body, brings to four the number of casualties from the blast which authorities blamed on gas leaks.
 
Three men, all of them employees of appliance store Abenson, have immediately been killed after a slab of concrete from the blast crushed the delivery truck they were riding.
 
San Juan, for his, part, was on his out of Unit 501 when the explosion occurred, initial results of the probe revealed.
 
The U.S.-based Pinoy was in Manila to attend a wedding, and had been staying in the unit owned by his friend for nine days at the time of the blast.
 
San Juan, who investigators hoped would further shed light on the incident, died without being able to give a statement to the police.

Ayala Land Inc., the developer of Two Serendra, has nonetheless ordered the condominium’s piped-in gas service to be permanently shut down.

    Ayungin dilemma

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
