He embodies grace under pressure.

Congressman Alfredo “Albee” Benitez of Negros Occidental managed to sneak in a smile despite falling into murky waters in Zamboanga. The politiko was among the unlucky visitors who stood on a makeshift bridge that collapsed just as he was leading a group of politikos checking on the status of housing projects in the city.

A candid photo captured Benitez’s amused smile despite the accident.

“Kahit malaglag pa tayo ng ilang beses, ‘di ito dahilan para tayo ay tumigil sa paglingkod. Tuloy parin ang trabaho. Tuloy parin ang pag-aksyon laban sa mga problema ng pabahay,” the politiko said.

Benitez even managed to post a thank you to friends and supporters who asked how he is doing after the fall.
