Atty Leni Robredo Pays Tribute to 5 Bulacan Rescuers who Died During Operation
Former Vice President Atty Leni Robredo praises the heroism of five (5) rescuers in Bulacan who died during typhoon Karding.
Robredo tweets her condolences to the families of the five rescuers who perished on Sunday, September 25, at the height of Super Typhoon “Karding.” She paid respect to those who lost their lives during the rescue efforts in Bulacan province.
“Nakikiramay ako sa mga mahal sa buhay ng limang rescuers ng PDRRMO Bulacan na nagbuwis ng kanilang buhay sa kasagsagan ng #KardingPH,” she said in his tweet on Tuesday, September 27.
“Salute and gratitude, George, Troy Justin, Marby, Jerson, and Narciso Jr., for the bravery and enthusiasm you showed until the end. In recognition of their heroism, an opportunity like this emphasizes the importance of support for rescuers and disaster response workers, who face danger for our safety. I am united in the call to ensure the well-being of them and their families,” added the former vice president.
The five casualties were reportedly taken to San Miguel’s Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) to help with rescue efforts in the flooded area. According to early reports, the victims decided to use a boat because the truck they were riding in couldn’t get to the heavy flood levels.
According to reports, during the rescue efforts, the wall of the Gulf Gasoline Station in Barangay Camias collapsed, allowing floodwater to pour in and forcing the victims to perish.
The victims were Troy Justin P. Agustin, 30, and George E. Agustin, 45, both of Ina O Este Calumpit. Rita, Guiguinto; Jerson L. Resurreccion, 32, of Barangay Catmon, Sta Maria; Marby A. Bartolome, 36, of Bulihan, Malolos; and Narciso Calayag, of Malolos City.
