p.1 #1 · Living in a firetruck


Initially I did not notice that there were actually people "living" in the back of this firetruck.
I did concentrate on the sleeping person, aside the truck (#1).
While moving on, I saw this plastic "curtain".
Their story was not just about being homeless ... 9 years ago, their 17-year old son had to undergo minor surgery. They never saw him again ... just got his hospital tag and an "explanation" that he did not made it.
They have no idea what ( really) happened to him. The mother did show his picture and some paperwork, as if she expected me to give her an answer ...
Especially the father got very emotional about it.

Wow Velu. That's a heartbreaking story. Very well documented, you do a good job of showing the hardness and the emotion. So, is the fire truck abandoned and that's why they are able to live in it?

Hi David,

Yes, it was heartbreaking. Frankly, I have no idea if it's an abandoned truck or not ...
The hardware was still looking great and compared to a lot of vehicles, it seemed well maintained, but off course, that's not a guarantee for being operational.
But it has a license plate ... guess it's not common to leave that on an abandoned truck.
Anyway, It was located along a main road ... no fire station in sight.
Maybe it broke down recently, and they did find shelter in the back.


Thank you

Yes Phil,

the Philippines.

But even in our Western world, situations like this occur ...

For sure Lisa,

Even with our problems, big or small, there are people out there, encountering far worse.

Nice photos.

And good to have the "Backstory" introduction notes (captions) too.

Thanks for sharing/posting them here for us to see.
