Pangasinan town mayor dies of heart attack

By |

MANGALDAN, Pangasinan – Mayor Herminio Romero died of heart attack Sunday night while speaking before a crowd at a Christmas party in San Fabian town.

Romero, who collapsed at 9:30 p.m. as he was greeting the people, was rushed to the Decena Hospital in Bonuan, Dagupan City. Doctors, however, declared him dead on arrival.

Romero was serving his third term as town mayor and was running as provincial board member of the Pangasinan’s fourth district. He was vice mayor and councilor before he was elected mayor.

Romero’s close aide said the attack could have been triggered by fatigue because he had been conducting caucuses and attending holiday activities.

    WALANG bagay na hihigit sa halaga ng kalusugan.  Anong halaga ng kahit na anong bagay, tulad ng salapi, kung walang kalusugan.  Kahit na sabihin pang may $1 trillion ka o preisdente ka ng buong mundo, kung patay naman ang iyong kalusugan, bale wala ang halagang yan o ang poisiton na yan sa iyo!  Kaya, pangalagaan ng mabuti ang kalusugan kung ang hangad ay kaligayahan.
