54-year-old in cash aid line dies after truck mishap

A 54-year-old woman waiting in line for financial assistance died on Tuesday afternoon after she was hit by a truck whose driver suffered from a heart attack in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan.

According to Mariz Umali’s report on “24 Oras,” Analyn Somooc was in critical condition after the incident and sustained multiple rib fractures.

“May blunt abdominal trauma siya. Though ‘yung abdomen niya was cleared, we did immediately ‘yung mga diagnostic workup. Ang problem talaga namin ‘yung sa chest,” Erbe Bugay, the chief of the Ospital ng Lungsod ng San Jose Del Monte, said.

(She has blunt abdominal trauma. Though her abdomen was cleared, we immediately did diagnostic workups. But our problem is in her chest area. She has multiple rib fractures.)

Bugay said the victim also suffered from pneumothorax or a collapsed lung due to her fractured ribs.

Somooc later succumbed to her injuries.

“Aksidente po kasi, sino po sisisihin namin?” Abegail, Somooc’s daughter, said.

(It was an accident, who can we blame?)

Abegail said the medical personnel was unable to resuscitate her mother due to her injuries.

“Sana na lang po matulungan na lang po kami hanggang sa matapos po ‘yung pagpapalibing po ni mama kasi wala rin naman po kaming aasahan na pera sa ngayon,” she said.

(I hope that they can help us until we can bury our mother because we have no income right now.)

Meanwhile, Mary Rose Yustakyo, one of the nine victims, must undergo a chest and cranial CT scan. She is still being monitored at the hospital, but is no longer in critical condition.

Three other victims that were brought to the hospital for minor injuries have been discharged while four victims did not submit themselves to a check-up.

The San Jose Del Monte Bulacan Police said the truck will be included in its investigation.

“Ongoing pa rin ‘yung investigation natin dito. I-determine natin kung ano po talaga yung nangyari. Kung ano po talaga yung sakit natin nitong driver na ito,” Police Major Julius Alvaro, San Jose Del Monte Police chief, said.

(The investigation is ongoing. We will determine what really happened and the illness of the driver.)

Meanwhile, Mayor Arthur Robes expressed his condolences to the victims.

Robes said the local government will pay for the victims’ hospitalization as well as the burial of Somooc and the driver.

The mayor said the cash assistance for the people in line will instead be delivered to their homes.—Joahna Lei Casilao/LDF, GMA News
