The viral incident, where a security guard who was directing traffic was ran over by a RAV-4, happened in Mandaluyong. A video captured the whole incident and it has gone viral on social media.
In a related story, it was revealed that the security guard who was ran over by an SUV in Mandaluyong has a sick mother whom he is still looking after. This was revealed by one of his co-workers, Chris Soriano, and who also said that he is also the "padre de pamilya." According to Soriano, the mother of the security guard has not yet been informed about the condition of his son, for fears that she might not be able to bear it. The agency of the guard has also signified that they will help in the expenses of the elderly mother while her son is still in the hospital.
Recently, a video of the said guard being run over by a white SUV has gone viral. In the video, the security guard, who was manning traffic at the time, appeared to have signalled the driver of the SUV to stop. However, the white SUV, later identified as a Toyota RAV-4, went ahead and bumped the guard, knocking him to the ground. The vehicle then lurched forward, running over the now-fallen guard.
