“Sobrang lakas. Siguro kung walang salamin tatalsik ka sa sobrang lakas ng impact,” Sebastian told The Philippine STAR.

Another video posted by netizens on Facebook showed a Filipina in a hospital, with blood drenched all over her face. In the video, she claimed no one was assisting her at the moment, perhaps her because the medical staff was overwhelmed with casualties.

“Walang nag-aasikaso sa akin, mauubos na ang dugo ko,” she said in the video.

Meanwhile, another Filipino netizen in Beirut posted a video in which she narrated what happened following the explosion—noting that buildings were destroyed and many were injured.

“Muntikan na akong masaksakan ng poste. Oh my God. Buti na lang walang nangyari sa akin. Nanginginig ako hindi ko alam kung ano ang gagawin ko,” she said while showing the impact of the explosion in the city on her video.

The Philippine Embassy in Beirut reported that the latest number of injured OFWs from the explosion in Lebanon’s capital has climbed to 24.

The wounded Filipinos, who mostly sustained minor injuries, are household helpers who were staying in the employers’ homes at the time of the incident.
