ABS-CBN News reports that the victim, identified as Christian Alejo, was collecting scrap metal at a vacant lot when he was crushed to death by the bulldozer.
The bulldozer’s operator, who is still unidentified, did not notice that Alejo was behind the machine when he backed up, witnesses said, according to the report.
The operator reportedly fled the scene and remains at large.
The victim’s father, Eduardo, plead to the suspect to turn himself in and surrender to the police, the report said.
