Another body of a Filipino United Nations peacekeeper was pulled from the rubble of a collapsed building a week after a devastating quake hit Haiti.
Military spokesman Lt. Col. Romeo Brawner Jr. said in an interview at Unang Balita that the body of Sgt. Eustacio Bermudez was retrieved from the rubble of the collapsed United Nations headquarters, formerly Christopher Hotel, in Port-Au-Prince at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday (Manila time).
Bermudez is the third confirmed Filipino fatality in the magnitude-7.0 quake that rocked the Caribbean island nation. He was a clerk at the Conduct and Discipline Unit/Force Provo Martial of the Philippine peacekeeping force in Haiti.
Earlier confirmed killed in the quake was Jerome Yap, a United Nations staff member serving with the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).
