Marital spat saves couple, kids from landslide in Rizal

A lovers' quarrel between a husband and wife appears to have saved their family from the landslide that occurred in Barangay San Rafael in Rodriguez, Rizal on Friday morning.

According to Bam Alegre’s report on “24 Oras” at least four houses were damaged in the incident.

Kristine Paloma said her family was fortunate that they were not in their house when the incident happened.

She and her kids decided to sleep at their relatives’ house the day before the landslide because she and her husband got into a fight.

“Feeling ko naman po nakatulong. Kung okay po kami, baka diyan po kami natulog, baka napahamak pa po kami,” Paloma said.

Moreover, barangay officials said the residents will not be allowed to return to their area as it is accident prone.

The local government said it was already coordinating with the residents regarding their relocation in Sitio Sapa. -Ma. Angelica Garcia/NB, GMA News
