A Moro fisherman named Morkah Maruhom lost his right arm last Friday 05 September 2014 in a premature explosion of a dynamite he was to use for fishing at the downstream channel of the Simuay River in Sultan Mastura town, Maguindanao. Investigators said the home-made dynamite exploded in the hand of Maruhom while he was about to hurl it to a deep portion of the Simuay River, which connects to the Moro Gulf at the west coast of Sultan Mastura, located in the first district of Maguindanao. The explosive was fashioned from a highly combustible plant fertilizer mixed with gasoline and sulfur stored in an empty soda bottle. Maruhom’s arm was severed by the blast. He also sustained blast wounds in the face and chest.
