Robredo, 2 others missing after plane crash

By , , |,


THE GOOD TIMES. The best of possibilities was at hand when then Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo met then presidential candidate Sen. Benigno Aquino III upon his arrival at the Naga airport in March 2010 for a campaign stump in Daet.

Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo called his wife Maria Leonor “Leni” Gerona Robredo at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday to say that the plane flying him from Cebu to Camarines Sur was having engine problems.

Leni, a lawyer, made this confirmation, adding that the call was immediately cut off and there was no contact with Robredo after that.

Malacañang has confirmed that the six-seater Piper Seneca plane that Robredo was on board with three others had gone missing after it crashed in the waters off the shoreline of Masbate City at about 5 p.m. Saturday.

The private aircraft was heading for Naga City, Robredo’s hometown, from Cebu when one of the pilots sent a distress call to the Masbate Airport, requesting permission for an emergency landing. That was the last contact with Robredo’s plane.

The plane crashed some 3 kilometers from the airport on Masbate Bay, Robredo’s head executive assistant Dominina Rances said in a phone interview.

Also reported missing were the pilot, identified as Capt. Jessup Bahinting, owner of Aviatour Flight School, and Nepalese copilot Kshitiz Chand.

Philippine National Police Chief Nicanor Bartolome said P/Senior Insp. Jun Abrazado, Robredo’s aide, survived after he unbuckled his seat belt and was thrown off the plane during the crash. He was later rescued by fishermen.

“But after he was given initial medical treatment, he returned to the site to join the search,” Bartolome added.

Abrazado suffered a fracture in the arm and was brought for emergency treatment at a hospital in Masbate City, according to Lt. Col. Julian Pacatan, commander of the Army 9th Infantry Battalion in Masbate now involved in the search-and-rescue operation.

Bartolome has directed the police in the area to join the search, even as he has deployed divers and volunteers to help the Coast Guard and Masbate local officials, led by Gov. Rizalina Lanete, who have mounted a search-and-rescue operation. But as of 7:30 Saturday night, inadequate equipment necessary for nighttime search underwater prompted frogmen to temporarily withdraw from the crash site, according to Ernie Delgado of the Philippine Information Agency in Masbate.

Robredo arrived in Cebu about 11 a.m. and attended the ground breaking of the Philippine Police Safety College in Consolacion town, northern Cebu.

Consolacion Mayor Nene Alegado said that during her lunch with Robredo, the Secretary commented about the humid weather in Cebu.

“Mainit dito sa Cebu. Sa Manila palagi umuulan. (It is very hot here in Cebu unlike in Manila where it is always raining),” Alegado quoted Robredo as saying.

From Consolacion, Robredo proceeded to the Cebu International Convention Center in Mandaue City to deliver his keynote speech before the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-Community Investigative Support national summit.

Robredo was supposed to leave Cebu on a Cebu Pacific flight but made last minute changes because he was rushing to go home to Naga.

Senior Supt. Erson Digal, who was part of the security escort of the secretary during his visit in Cebu, said Robredo was supposed to take a 2:40 p.m. flight back to Manila but changed his mind and decided to go home to Naga City instead.

Robredo took a chartered flight to Naga from Aviatour Flight School based in Lapu-Lapu City, Mactan Island. Capt. Bahinting agreed to pilot the Piper Seneca to Naga along with flight student Chand.

Local Government Undersecretary Rico Puno said Robredo’s plane left Cebu at around 2:30 p.m.

Based on information gathered from Abrazado, the aide did not see Robredo get out of the plane when it crashed, according to Lt. Col. Julian Pacatan.

Digal said in an interview over dySS that he received a text message from Abrazado that their plane was having problems with the propeller while making a turn.

A few minutes later, Robredo’s aide sent another text message to Digal, saying they were about to make an emergency landing.

Amparo Perez, president of the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) in Masbate, said in a phone interview that rescue operations have stopped between 7:30 and 8 p.m. “It is already dark but rescue will resume at 5:30 a.m. tomorrow, Sunday,” she said.

She said as of 6:30 p.m., rescuers were still scouring the sea and found the currents along Ticao Pass very strong even as the crash site was just two kilometers away from the shoreline.

At the Robredo residence at Bulusan Street, Dayangdan, Naga City, over a hundred people, including family, friends and political allies, have gathered and kept vigil.

The prayer for his safe return started at 8 p.m. at the living room while his wife Leni stayed inside her bedroom with some close relatives.

At around 7:30 p.m., the crowd cheered when they heard a radio report saying Robredo was found alive by fishermen.

The elation turned to gloom when they learned that the news was not true.

Robredo, 54, has been the Local Government Secretary since his appointment in July 2010. He served as mayor of Naga City in Camarines Sur for nearly two decades.

He won his first mayoral bid in 1988 at the age of 29, making him one of the youngest Philippine city mayors. He served as mayor of Naga City for six three-year terms—from 1988 to 1998 and from 2001 to 2010.

He became the president of the League of Cities of the Philippines, the national association of city mayors, in 1995. He was also elected chairman of the Regional Development Council, the regional planning and coordinative body of Bicol, from 1992 to 1998.

In recognition of his work, Robredo was cited in 1999 by Asiaweek magazine “for transforming Naga City from a lethargic Philippine city into one of Asia’s most improved.”

He also received individual awards for local governance including the 1996 Outstanding Young Persons of the World (TOYP) Award, the Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines (TOYM), 1998 Konrad Adenauer Medal of Excellence as Most Outstanding City Mayor of the Philippines and the first ever “Dangal ng Bayan ” Award of the Civil Service Commission.

In 2000, he received the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service for “giving credence to the promise of democracy by demonstrating that effective city management is compatible with yielding power to the people.”

An Edward Mason Fellow and a graduate of Masters in Public Administration at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, he completed his Masters in Business Administration at the University of the Philippines.

He obtained his undergraduate degrees in Industrial Management Engineering and Mechanical Engineering from the De La Salle University.

After his graduation from De La Salle University in 1980, Robredo joined San Miguel Corporation’s Magnolia division. He returned to Naga City in 1986 where he was named  director of the Bicol River Basin Development Program, an agency tasked to undertake integrated area development planning in the region’s three provinces.

He finished high school at the Ateneo de Naga.

Born in Naga City on May 27, 1958, he is the third of five children of Jose Chan Robredo Sr. and Marcelina Manalastas. He and wife Leni, who is also from Naga, have three daughters.

Aquino’s emergency landing

On August 10, heavy rains and poor visibility also forced the President’s convoy of helicopters to make an emergency landing at the Luisita exit of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.

At the time, Mr. Aquino was on his way to an evacuation center in Paniqui.

Brig. Gen. Ramon Dizon, commander of the Presidential Security Group, said they decided to land before it started to rain “to be on the safe side.”

With the President on the helicopter were Joel Villanueva of the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority and Aurora Representative Juan Edgardo Angara. With reports from Doris C. Bongcac and Cris Evert Lato, Inquirer Visayas; Juan Escandor Jr., Joanna Los Baños, Inquirer Southern Luzon

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ATUKZDPAC57OLUAVID6ZONAZTA Angelic Angel

    They are continuing the search despite nighttime primarily because Sec. Robredo is a high-profile character. If someone unknown had crashed, they would only start the search tomorrow morning. This is the cruel reality we have to face.

        Ang mga muslims ay tamad.  Gusto lang nila maghintay ng biyaya.  Gusto lang nila pumatay.  Gusto lang nila mag-traydor.

      • Andre Mitchell

        Why are muslims so powerless?
        Why are the Jews so powerful?

        For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

        Answer: EDUCATION
        The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge.
        The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.
        The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

      • indiosbravos2002

        Why are you from Bicol? Or are you just a follower of Eddie Garcia. From where I came from (the last time I checked is part of Bicol). The word is used positively. Urag means galing. Unfortunately, outside the province and to some posers, this word has been connected to sex alone which is not correct.

        However, for argument sake. It could be used also in the context more commonly known to non-Bicolanos which is sex. Maurag sa babae (Good with girls or girl magnet) or Maurag sa kama (Good in bed). But limiting it to sex alone shows ignorance to the proper use of the word, urag or orag

    Despite obeing an avid PNoy critic, I don’t want to rejoice on this fateful incident that befell on Robredo’s family. I joined them in prayers hoping against hope that Robredo will be found healthy and safe. But I have to remind PNoy that the omens are in rapid succession for him to recover his senses if he has one. First, the grant of GMA’s bail, then Delima’s disqualification, followed closely by Rolito Go’s kidnapping, then this Robredo accident.

    By the way, another inmate is found missing in the New Bilibid Prisons – a confirmation of Delima’s praise release that “Kidnapping has been happening inside the Bilibid.” A proof that all is well since the Bucor is under the DOJ..

    • marlaw

      Tama ka dapat hayaan na lang ni PNoy na magpatuloy ang mga nasimulan at ginawang anomalya sa ilalim ng rehimeng Arroyo….. patawarin ang mga nagnakaw sa gobyerno sa pangunguna ni Gloria at patakasin ito sa ibang bansa.

    It appears that Puno was with Robredo in Cebu earlier. Nothing in the news however, explained why Puno did not accompany Robredo back. This survivor Abrazado must be taken extra care and guarded heavily since he is only the one who can shed light to this fateful “accident.” I smell something fishy in this “accident.”

      Lacson wants Robredo’s job, but Pnoy doesn` t want to hurt Robredos feelings by firing him to give Sen Lacson DILG. Military handles airport operations in Cebu. Lacson is a PMAer. . . Puno draws his power from being a shadow. Having someone good like Robredo in the front, but doing his schemes in the background. He wouldn’t like Robredo dead and risk having Lacson or Binay as his boss.

    Public Officials in the Philippines should be
    informed to speak in Filipino when being interviewed on TV during
    catastrophes or providing updates on news reports… Today (here in the
    US) was flashed the report that Sec Robredo’s plane crashed and some
    Vice Mayor or Vice Governor was interviewed by the Weekend anchors of
    TV Patrol – Alvin El Chico and Pinky Webb. For some reason the
    interviewee insisted on speaking in garbled English and pained
    clarifying his answers. It was obvious even the anchor-interviewers
    were exasperated by him…. Mas masama pa, paano kaya siya naiintindihan
    ng mga nakikinig/nanonood na mamamayang Pilipino????

    • JohnDoeGB

      I’ve seen that news. It was not garbled English to me. Maybe you are just overly exposed to American English. You can’t push for everyone to speak Filipino when interviewed simply because everyone (especially in the provinces) speaks a primary dialect and is not well versed in Tagalog/Filipino. For example, the Cebuanos have difficulty expressing themselves in Tagalog. They can express themselves more in English than in Filipino.

    Parang ang dami talagang MALAS, KALAMIDAD, at KAHIRAPAN sa panahon ngayon… plane crash, storm surge, baha, lindol, flash flood, bagyo. Napansin nyo ba? Para bang wala tayong annointing and blessings from God. God gives His blessings through our leaders that is from the head, to the beard, to the collar bone. When God gives His blessing, everything and everyone falls into its places… perfect lahat, walang problema… kaso andami nating problema… may problema ata sa pagreceive and pagflow ng blessings. :-(

    • spearheads

      Alam mo ba kung bakit long haired ang karamihan ng nagtuturo sa banal na kasulutan, example lamplighters? Kasi daw ginagaya nila si Jesus. Yong buhok daw ay may ugat na parang puno. Ibig lang sabihin ay lahat ng bendisyon galing langit ay nasasalo ng buhok tungo sa ugat at sa utak o pagisip. Pero kung walang buhok yong pinuno syempre lahat ng bendisyon dudulas kaya wag ka ng umasa pa.

      • JohnDoeGB

        Pare, hindi naman literal ang interpretation ko sa nakasulat sa Bible. Yes, it is written in the bible that blessings come from the head, to the beard, and to the collar bone. I have learned that the beard symbolizes the elders (mid-managers/leaders) and the collar bone the people that holds the elders and the head up high. It is equally important to note of their levels as well. When the lower level rebel and make an uprising, there is chaos. And the blessings do not flow naturally. Equally, kung ang head naman ang hindi worthy, there is no blessing at all that flows from the head down to the people.

        Pare, I encourage you to seek the truth in the bible… for there is so much wisdom… there are life changing truths you can have. Sa mga bobo lang yong literal at illogical na understanding sa bible.

    What do U expect from Pinas aircraft?
    Those planes are unchecked, parts unchanged and unmaintained…

    Most specially, the Pinoy technicians and mechanics are probably DRUNK at work or derelict in doing or neglecting or perhaps even sleeping on the job and would just state that they’ve done the checklists even if they didn’t…so true! WHY??? coz they’re mostly underpaid!
     
    That’s why I don’t fly PAL coz their planes are obsolete and with its employee strikes and dissatisfaction I wouldn’t be surprised with a looming inevitable crash eventually though hopefully not. At least CebPac has newer airplanes but with the attitude of Pinoy employees then I’d rather WALK or swim with the sharks, Hmfftt.

    • delpillar

      If you don’t know the honorable Secretary, zipper your mouth.
      For you to know, Secretary Robredo is not gahaman sa poder. He was carefully selected by the present government and NO one objected it…. mapag-oposisyon man, pro-admin party man. He is still an appointed and requested cabinet minister until now, yet no one is objecting his appointment. He is not the highest executive of the country. There are more powerful than him that can supersede his decisions.

      He was a multi-awarded mayor of Naga City not only from national body but from International Agencies.

      Now, Ikaw na ngayon ang mag-explain kung gaano ka ka-efficient sa DOLE PHILIPPINES sa General Santos City na pinagta-trabahuhan mo.

    Every man`s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he
    lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

    Farewell to a man who lived honorably, not dying to enrich himself in office as almost 99.99% do but while alive, working to his honest best and dying dutifully.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     
    Cowards (dishonest men in govt) die many times before their deaths
    The valiant (the consistently honorable ones) never taste of death but once. – 
    WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Julius Caesar

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     Those who think about
    death, carrying with them their existing ideas and emotions, usually
    assume that they will have, during their last hours, ideas and emotions
    of like vividness … but they do not fully recognize the implication
    that the feeling faculty, too, is almost gone. They imagine the state to
    be one in which they can have emotions such as they now have on
    contemplating the cessation of life. But at the last all the mental
    powers simultaneously ebb, as do the bodily powers, and with them goes
    the capacity for emotion in general. It is, indeed, possible that in its
    last stages consciousness is occupied by a not displeasurable sense of
    rest. – HERBERT SPENCER, Facts and Comments

    It seems a strange
    and repugnant conclusion that with the cessation of consciousness at
    death, there ceases to be any knowledge of having existed. With his last
    breath it becomes to each the same thing as though he had never lived.
    And then the consciousness itself — what is it during the time that it
    continues? And what becomes of it when it ends? We can only infer that
    it is a specialized and individualized form of that Infinite and Eternal
    Energy which transcends both our knowledge and our imagination; and
    that at death its elements lapse into the Infinite and Eternal Energy
    whence they were derived. – HERBERT SPENCER, Facts and Comments

    He is more that just a decent man. He is a remarkable man. He lives with unquestionable high ethical standards. His efforts and initiatives for good governance is recognized by international leaders community and is verifiable in Naga City where he was elected mayor at the age of 29 – youngest elected mayor  in the Philippines. And he lives a simple life with his family. At a cost. I If he  was someone who abused power mas maganda at magarang eroplano sana gamit nya. At hindi sana siya nagmamadali going home to attend an awarding ceremony of her youngest daughter. The sacrifices it entails to be more than just a decent man, more than a successful man.

     Sec Robredo is a great loss to all of us pinoys. Friends and foes alike. His no-nonsense, politically neutral way of leading the DILG has brought to court a good number of erring public officials. And the police safety college in Consolacion ( a northern town of Cebu) he just inaugurated that day attests to his determination to initiate a serious social re-engineering program for our very sadly largely misguided police force. Sec Robredo is one dreamer but whose feet were kept well grounded all the time.
