St. Louis Hospital in Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat condemned the harassment experienced by one of its utility workers on Friday, March 27. (Editor’s note: We previously identified the hospital personnel as a nurse. We apologize for the error.)
According to the hospital’s Facebook post, the utility worker was passing by the public market when he was attacked by 5 individuals.
“Outnumbered and alone, he was helpless as these vile individuals splattered Zonrox (bleach) all over his face,” the statement said, adding that the crime could have resulted in irreparable and permanent damage to his sight.
Fortunately, the utility worker immediately headed to the hospital and was given prompt treatment. The case was then reported to the President Quirino Police Station.
