MetadataShow full item record
Did foul odor kill a 26-year-old oil spill worker in Brgy. Botongon, Estancia?. Donnie Trogo was a patinet at the Jesus M. Colmenares Memorial District Hospital in Balasan, near Estancia. Former Estancia Sangguniang Bayan member Wilson Balingit, meanwhile, said in a radio interview that Trogo's illness could have worsened due to the toxic air wafting from the oil spill. Dr. Resurreccion Sadaba, program manager of Oil Spill Response Program of the University of the Philippines Visayas and consultant of Defensor, said bunker oil contains BTEX (Benzene, Toulene, Ethylbenzene and Xylenes) - volatile substances that may cause skin irritation and aggravate pre-existing respiratory ailments.
