4 hurt in Bukidnon landslide

MANILA, Philippines - Four people were hurt and 2 houses were damaged in a landslide in Kitaotao town in Bukidnon on Saturday night.

The accident, which took place at around 7 p.m., left 64-year-old Enoria Pansacala, her husband Thomas, and 2 grandchildren hurt. They were brought to a hospital in Quezon town for treatment.

Pansacala's house, as well as her sister's, were buried by the landslide.

"Natabunan ako ng mga bato, sumalpok sa mukha ko, natangay na ako," Pansacala said in her native dialect.

Meanwhile, a bulldozer has been sent to clear roads from Davao to Maloos, which remain impassable to vehicles because of the landslide. -- Report from Francis Magbanua, ABS-CBN Davao
