In a Facebook post shared 418 times as of Saturday morning, a netizen named Lito Quesada published the photo of a newly constructed “bridge” in Bontoc Southern Leyte.

The new bridge looks nothing out of the ordinary but upon closer inspection, the eagle-eyed netizens noticed something isn’t right with the photo.

Why? Normally, a bridge comprises of a bridge and a river, especially in the provincial settings.

Unlike in Metro Manila and other urbanized cities, a bridge does not necessarily need a river to be constructed but it is known by a different name, a “flyover.”

Let us read together now the adverse reactions from netizens of the controversial and viral photo.

Lito Quesada wrote: The owner of this photo is Chicoy Olojan Ang .. and she is not a supporter of any Candidates… ikaw na mismo ang nagsabing mahirap humusga… ngayon ikaw mismo ang naghusga kay Duterte na Pro NPA … be fair lang! (You said it yourself that it not easy to judge. Now, you yourself is judging Duterte that he is pro-NPA. Be fair!)

Netizens commented that the government is so advanced in planning that they constructed the bridge even before the river is created.
