President Rodrigo Duterte is one hardworking leader.

After attending the graduation rites of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) on Sunday, the President, along with his top aide Secretary Bong Go, flew over Manila Pavillion Hotel, which was hit by a deadly fire.

SAP Go shared several photos of the aerial inspection.

Duterte immediately went back to Manila after breaking bread with the new PMA graduates during their traditional merienda cena.

The President said he had to go back to Manila to meet with several officials.

Five people were killed and 14 others were injured during the fire which started from the casino area of the hotel. Firefighters took 25 hours before declaring a fire out.
