MANILA, Philippines — The City Health Office in Masbate City has released the result of its necropsy report on the bodies of Far Eastern University football player Keith Absalon and his cousin Nolven Absalon.

The two died from a landmine explosion on June 6 while biking in their hometown in Purok 4, Barangay Anas, Masbate City.

However, based on the report, Keith also sustained a gunshot wound on the right eye while Nolven sustained a gunshot wound on the right shoulder blade and on the left lateral distal thigh.

The report further confirmed that Keith died of hemorrhagic shock secondary to gunshot wound and blast injuries while Nolven’s death was caused mainly by hemorrhagic shock from the gunshot wound he sustained.

The Communist Party of the Philippines – New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) has taken full responsibility for the deaths of the two men.

“The entire CPP and NPA take full responsibility for the tragedy. There is no justification for the aggravation this has caused the Absalon family,” CPP information officer Marco Valbuena said in a statement.

The communist group also expressed “deep remorse over the untimely and unnecessary deaths” of the cousins resulting from “errors in the military action mounted by an NPA unit.”

MANILA, Philippines – Bumagsak ang sinasakyang eroplano ni DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo alas-4:30 ng hapon ng Sabado (Agosto 18) sa bahagi ng Masbate City. Si Robredo ay iniulat na kasalukuyang nawawala.

Ayon kay Philippine National Police chief, Director General Nicanor Bartolome, kasama ni Robredo ang isa niyang aide-de-camp na si Senior Inspector Jun Abrazado at dalawa pang piloto lulan ng Piper Ceneca PA 34-200 plane mula Cebu patungong Naga City.

Tinukoy ng PNP ang dalawang pilot na sina Captain Jessup Bahinting at ang Nepalese flight student na si Kshitiz Chand.

Ayon sa ulat, kagagaling lamang ni Robredo sa isang pagtitipon kasama si Under Secretary Rico Puno sa Cebu at umano ay hahabol sa awarding ceremony ng kanyang anak sa Naga City.

Tanging si Abrazado lamang ang nasaklolohan ng isang dumaraang mangingisda at ayon kay PNP Chief Bartolome, sinabi nitong ilang minuto pa lamang silang nakakaalis sa Cebu City nang magkaproblema ang eroplano. Sinubukan umano ng piloto na mag-emergency landing sa Masbate City Airport subalit nag-iba ang takbo nito.

“Di umabot sa runway yung plane nila. About 300 meters from the airport bumagsak sa tubig,” pahayag ni Bartolome.

Kinumpirma ni Bartolome na si Robredo at ang dalawang piloto ay nasa loob pa ng eroplano nang ito ay bumagsak. Sa kasalukuyan ayon kay Bartolome ay patuloy ang search and rescue operations sa lugar na tinukoy ni Abrazado kung saan bumagsak ang eroplano. Agad ring kumilos ang mga kawani ng Philippine Coast Guard at Philippine Navy upang tumulong sa paghahanap. (UNTV News)
