Sen. Joel Villanueva's statement on deadly Bulacan water tank explosion

We are saddened and taken aback by the recent explosion of a water district tank in Barangay Muzon in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan which instantly killed three persons and injured dozens of individuals.

We urge the local officials of San Jose del Monte and the proper authorities to investigate the fatal incident which might have been caused by utter neglect on the part of those responsible in the monitoring and maintenance of the water tank's condition.

We also extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims who suffered from this dismal incident.

Let this event serve as a resounding call for our local governments to re-examine the safety of establishments within their localities to prevent similar accidents and another senseless loss of lives in the future.
