Albee Benitez together with Mayor Beng Climaco, District I Cong. Celso Lobregat and other city officials and their staff and members of the media was doing site inspection of houses intended for victims of the siege. An adjacent bridge also collapsed several minutes later,” read the caption of the photos posted on the page.
