MANILA, Philippines - A garbage collector could not help but express his anger after discovering an 8-month-old fetus from garbage plastic bags in the Kamuning station of the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) past Thursday midnight.

Jun Portis, a regular garbage collector in the MRT station, said he took the garbage bags from the second floor.

While pulling out garbage from the bag, Portis said he saw the fetus wrapped in plastic.

“Akala ko hayop lamang poi yon eh. Doon ko lang po nakita na tao pala,” he said, adding that he immediately called the attention of the MRT’s security guards, who eventually informed the police about the discovery.

“Wala siyang puso. Nanay pa naman siya. Walang siyang kuwentang tao,” Portis blurted out during an interview with ABS-CBN News.
 
Senior Police Officer 2 Boy Trago, Quezon City police investigator, said that it was obvious that the baby was a victim of abortion.

Trago and other policemen brought the fetus to the police station. – Report from Doland Castro, ABS-CBN News
