CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand - Two nurses from Iloilo City who recently arrived here were confirmed to be among those trapped and feared killed in the collapsed Caterbury Television (CTV) building, which collapsed on Feb. 22.
The Filipino flatmates of Maria Louise Amantillo and Valquin Bensurto said they received mobile phone calls for help from the two who were buried in the rubble, but they could not do anything but wait for their rescue.
“Hindi ko na kaya (I can't bear it anymore).”
These words from Amantillo were one of the last phone conversations she had with her flat mates hours after the 6.3-quake struck.
A graduate of the St. Paul University Iloilo, Louise is the second of four siblings of Linda and Alexander Amantillo. She left for New Zealand on Feb. 10, just 12 days before the tragedy, hoping to find work as a nurse.
