MANILA, Philippines -- A man was rushed to the East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC) after being hit by a stray bullet on New Year's Eve.

Dr. Emanuel Bueno, EAMC Director, said the victim pulled out the bullet from his leg before being taken to the hospital.

“Medyo mababaw naman at hindi nakabaon kaya nabunot n'ya,” said Bueno.

"Hindi naman natin alam kung saan nanggaling 'yung bala... gaya ng iba na basta mahuhulugan ka na lang ng ligaw na bala,” he added.

As of 11 p.m. there were 68 firecracker related injuries reported in seven hospitals in the National Capital Region.
