MANILA, Philippines– Three people were killed in an explosion that hit a residential condominium unit at the Two Serendra building at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig Friday night, police said.

Four other people were injured in the blast, the city government said.

The fatalities were on board a van that was crushed by large chunks of concrete that fell from an upper floor condo unit and into vehicles below, an initial radio dzMM report said.

Skip dela Cruz, who witnessed and took video footage of the aftermath of the explosion, told that a Starex van and an Abenson truck were crushed under the huge block of concrete.

The explosion occurred around 8 p.m, police said.

The loud blast triggered panic among mall-goers at nearby Market! Market!

Windows of several establishments were also damaged by the blast.

An eyewitness told ANC it may have come from the 5th floor.

“Habang nanonood ako ng TV may biglang sumabog. Nasa 6th floor ako, Unit 610B,” eyewitness Rene Boy Curado said.

“Nakita ko 5th floor, wasak na wasak yung 5th floor, yung unit,” he added.

“Nung sumabog siya pinatay ko yung TV ko tapos lumabas ako ng pintuan, paglabas ko ng pintuan, pumasok yung makapal na usok,” he said.

“Biglaang lumabas yung mga residente dito, yung iba nagsisigawan, yung iba nanghihingi ng tulong kasi yung usok nga, makapal yung usok,” Curado said.
