Glorietta 2 blast – 9 deaths, 100+ injured!!!

This is not related to blogging but this is something I could not neglect. I request that we all pray for the souls of the victims, and their families for the tragedy that struck them. Nobody deserves to die that way. -_-

It happened October 19, 2007 at around 1:30pm when a huge blast rocked Glorietta 2. The blast was first reported as an explosion from the LPG at Luk Yen Restaurant but further investigations seem to link it to a terrorist attack. Sirens were wailing like hell yesterday at Ayala Ave going to the scene of the disaster.

I would like to commend GMANews.TV for their prompt news update. I was trying to check the websites of Manilabulletin, Inquirer, ABS CBN news and GMANews for any updates and it was GMANews who provided the quickest update of the four sites I checked. I am not saying that the other websites are slow, I just say that in this event, GMANews was faster to react. ^_^

  1. yeah its bad news ~ T_T Lets all pray that nothing like this happens again.

  2. dun pa nman ako laging dumadaan sa portion na un before galing school. and lalu akong nalungkot ng nbalitaan kong may taga-AMA ang isa sa mga namatay (confirmed sa news kagabi from dick gordon).

  3. dito ko lang nalaman na may terrorist bombing pala na nangyari kahapon dyan sa manila. I am a loyal kapamilya pero saludo ako sa when it comes sa ganitong mga balita o insidente walang paloyal-loyal. Saludo ako sa bilis ng GMA. Salamat sa pagshare ng balita.

  4. i feel for the victims of the blast, and their families. watching the news earlier, i found out that most of those who died and were injured were breadwinners. my heart sank.

    let us pray for the victims and their families. let us pray for justice.

  5. yeah! GMAnews.tv rules talaga! 😛
