CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand—“Hindi ko na kaya (I can no longer take it).”
That was the last phone call to friends made by Maria Louise Amantillo, one of the missing Filipino nurses feared trapped under the rubble of the Canterbury Television (CTV) building, which collapsed Tuesday after a 6.3-magnitude quake battered the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.
Amelodin Disalongan, 24, and Joan Bunda, 24, said Louise made more than 10 mobile phone calls to them between the hours of 1 and 5 in the afternoon after the quake struck.
Around that time, Louise was also desperately texting her parents in Iloilo province, telling them she was buried in the rubble and pleading for help, according to the Associated Press.
