MANILA, Philippines -- A taxi driver died of a heart attack while crossing a footbridge in Balintawak, Quezon City on Friday, Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) said.

The victim, identified as Danilo Busas, was on his way home to Tarlac with his family after their observance of All Saints' Day in Valenzuela when the incident occurred.

Authorities said Busas suddenly fell short of breath and collapsed while going up the footbridge in Balintawak.

It was earlier reported that the victim was a traffic enforcer, but the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has yet to confirm this. -- Report from Johnson Manabat, dzMM
