“Lubha po tayong nalulungkot sa nangyari. Hindi po natin ito inaasahan at hindi kailan man hinangad na mangyari lalo na sa ating mga bayaning rescuers na mas pinili ang tumulong at iligtas ang buhay ng iba kahit ang kapalit nito ay sariling buhay,” Fernando said.
” Upang makatulong na rin po tayo na maibsan kahit papano ang lungkot at intindihin ng kanilang mga pamilya, personal ko na pong inayos ang mga kailangan para sa kanila; dinala na po natin ang kanilang mga labi sa Glory To God Funeral Services sa Barangay Balite, San Miguel,” he added.
