Trapped for more than three hours in a grocery store that collapsed in Porac, Pampanga after a magnitude 6.1 earthquake hit Luzon, Maria Martin, a Porac resident has decided to cut her foot to survive.

Martin wasn’t able to leave her workplace at Chuzon Supermarket during the tremor as her feet got stuck in the concrete debris.

When rescuers found Martin she was immediately asked if she would agree to cut her foot and for her to survive she willingly said yes.

Martin will undergo another medical procedure soon. Martin is one of the 16 victims of a supermarket building after a strong quake jolted numerous parts of Luzon.

The Department of Interior and Local Government or DILG has ordered the suspension of all business permits of all chains of Chuzon supermarket.

The Public Works and Highways department, on the other hand, is investigating the reason why the building had collapsed.
