On a rainy night last week, online editor Jojo Malig was nearly killed when his motorcycle ran into a large, unmarked six-inch deep hole dug right in the middle of a major road in Manila.
He broke a shoulder and suffered cuts and bruises – injuries which might have been much worse if his helmet visor wasn't down and protecting his face. He will be bed-ridden for a couple of weeks and will need physical therapy.
There were no lights or warning signs around the hole, which is about five by six feet in area and is one of several dotting the stretch of road.
The hole in question is still at the accident site, but it's keeping quiet and not making any statements.
