WATCH: Looters raid fallen truck filled with beer in NLEX
A video showing a group of people stealing beer from a wrecked delivery truck has gone viral on social networking site Facebook over the weekend.
As seen in a 46-second clip posted by Pinoy Trending News’ Fb page on Sunday, a truck bearing the San Miguel logo accidentally flipped over a barbed wire fence near the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Maysan Exit in Valenzuela City.
The helpless driver, who was stuck on the other side of the fence where the looting took place, watched in horror as dozens of men ran away with cases of beer from his truck.
The post was captioned, “Kahapon, June 18, may tumaob na truck na may kargang beer sa nlex maysan exit valenzuela city. Sa halip na tulungan, ninakawan pa ng mga residenteng nakatira malapit sa pinangyarihan.Wala ng nagawa ang driver kung di natulala sa kanyang sinapit”.
[Yesterday, June 18, a truck filled with beer flipped over near NLEX Maysan Exit, Valenzuela City. Instead of helping, residents near the scene opted to steal from the truck. The driver was unable to do anything and just stood in disbelief over what happened.]
The post has since been shared over 14,000 times, while those involved have received online backlash from angry commenters.
It remains unclear if the looters have been identified and/or if they would be slapped with criminal charges as of this story’s writing. Khristian Ibarrola/rga
