MANILA, Philippines—Stephanie Nicole Ella, the seven-year-old child  who was hit by a stray bullet while watching fireworks outside her Caloocan City home, has died, officials said Wednesday.

Case investigator Police Officer 3 Jerry Gamueda said he went to the East Avenue Medical Center after Ella’s uncle, Marvin, texted him to say that the girl had died.

Dr. Emmanuel Bueno, director of the East Avenue Medical Center, pronounced Nicole dead at around 2:26 p.m. after suffering a series of cardiac arrests since 5 a.m. on Wednesday.

Ella, a grade one pupil of the Tala Elementary School, had been in a deep coma since New Year’s Day after the bullet lodged itself in her head.  She had been undergoing treatment at the East Avenue Medical Center since then.

Bueno earlier said that Ella had eight cardiac arrests on Wednesday.

She was just watching a fireworks display with his father, Jay, near their home in Caloocan on New Year’s Eve when she suddenly collapsed due to a gunshot wound in her head.

Ella was among the nine people reportedly hit by stray bullets during the New Year ’s Eve revelry. Another child, four-year-old Ranjilo Nemer of Mandaluyong City, died from four gunshot wounds to his head and body.  Jeannette I. Andrade, Philippine Daily Inquirer

    Heartbreaking. May God bless the poor child’s soul. And for that person who fired his/her gun that caused the child’s death, may Satan take him/her to hell.

    It’s so saddening.  What an unnecessary waste of a promising life!  Revive the death penalty!!  Death to Nicole’s killer!!!

  • acidicboy

    decades ago I remember the police or the nbi was able to apprehend someone for indiscriminate firing of a handgun by measuring the trajectory, velocity and angle of the bullet.  I certainly hope they can do this again. 

    oh, and caloocan city is truly a big pile of mismanaged sh ithole. 

    • marionics

      mala csi yan a. sana nga pero ala yatang ganyan klaseng kagalingan ang pulis natin pre. pero sana naman magawa nila yang sinasabi mong yan

      • acidicboy

        posible yan with some knowledge on applied physics and other sciences.  as a matter of  fact, I hope UP and other science university majors can help solve this.  

      • WeAry_Bat

         Medyo possible yan. 

        Alam ng pamilya saan siya nakaharap, plus minus 5 inches.
        Na trace siguro ng doctor kung anong angle ng bala. 
        Malalaman sa bala kung 9mm, .45, .40 cal o ano pa.
        Sa alala ko, hindi naman malakas hangin nung gabi.

        Malamang, malapit lang ang suspek.  One or two blocks sa harap o likod lang ng bahay sa lawak ng mga 10 or 20 houses.

        Mey mga witness yan, sigurado kung magtatanong na ang pulis.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZWTTKJTI57YO7TZBJC66GA2OLU dennis

    I knew that this is an isolated case but kahit papaano eh sana eh mabigyan naman ng pansin ng ating gobyerno na magkaroon ng batas na magbabawal sa mga baril! Or magkaroon ng nationwide surrender of firearms.At the first place,WALA NAMANG GYERA SA PILIPINAS para maghawak ng firearms ang normal na mamamayan?…Nakikiramay ako sa pamilya ng biktima pero maibabalik ba natin ang buhay ng isang inosente? ANO BANG DAHILAN PARA GUMAMIT NG BARIL SA BAGONG TAON?

  • MrJoseRizal

    Bawal na ang wang-wang. Pero and bang-bang hindi kayang sugpuin. Para sa ating mga pulis na walang silbi (either isa sa inyo ang nagpaputok, o kaya namay talagang palpak kayo dahil hindi nyo mahuli ang may kagagawan nito), sayang ang perang pinapasahod sa inyo ng taong bayan, mabuti pa magtanim na lang kayo ng kamote. Nakakahiya kayo.

    To the Author (Jaime Marie Eloma):

    Perhaps it is best that you review closely your articles before posting. In a related article, the word coma was already misspelled as “comma” while here, you say that the poor child was a victim of a gunshot wound and then fireworks, and then gunshot wound again.

    To quote, “She was just watching a fireworks display with his father, Jay, near their home in Caloocan on New Year’s Eve when she suddenly collapsed with a gunshot wound in her head.

    Ella was among the 413 people injured by fireworks. Nine of them, including Ella, were wounded from stray bullets while 404 others sustained injuries due to firecrackers. ”

    Not only that, I checked your other articles and you commit countless of grammatical and spelling errors. You do not deserve a by-line at your level. And to the editor – please do your job and edit/review before posting.

    • esjay03

      I agree, editors must review the article first. Basta mauna lang sa pagpublish ng news, hindi na nire-review ang grammar, spelling, etc. I did the same thing to gma news, there’s one article with misleading info. They replied, telling me that the authors were already notified. PERO they also erased my comments.

  • EdsonArantesDoNascimiento

    2013 does not bode well for our benighted nation,what with the useless deaths of the innocents,so much destruction by fire,not to forget we have a retardate-cretin.,lazy and devisive leader(?).Such a waste!!!!!

  • WeAry_Bat

    Condolence also. 

    Pwede ba kahit one-month advance magpalabas sa TV ng bawal paputok ng baril sabay mga picture ng mga biktima?

    Pwede ba kahit one-month advance magpalabas sa TV na i-report sa text o tawag ang sinumang magpaputok ng baril?

    Ipalabas ang hotline at textline para i-huli ang nagpapaputok ng baril.

    Kahit sinong kapitbahay ang mag report sa pulis.  Dapat alam ng tao yung ganung kagaguhan hindi dapat ipapalampas.

    Bwi$it.

  • Mananandata69

    Don’t worry God will do justice to this innocent child. The killer is now being bothered by his conscience and very soon he will be caught or one of his loved one will die also

  • kabaliktaran

    Such a sad story.
    I was able to see this in the news last night.  The child even had pictures of her last moments (NYE party) featured in the news.  Condolence to her family.  I hope that the people who continue to fire guns indiscriminately during new year’s eve would already stop.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GSNMBBLLZ43XPQQIROO7XCR62E Den

    The madness must stop, and it must stop now before many more innocent lives are snuffed out just to satisfy the senseless craving to pull a trigger. It will take the collective effort of the citizenry to stop this menace of our society, but until we can have a more mature and responsible citizenry, we can have a reward and punishment system that will put an end to indiscriminate firing of guns. May I suggest:

    1. A reward of no less that P1,000,000 be given for information that will lead to the arrest of any person who will indiscrimately fire a gun regardless of whether the stray bullet will hurt or kill anyone. Any gun loving lunatic will think twice before firing a gun knowing that his neighbors, even his family, can easily choose the one million reward over him.

    2. A quick and credible method to prove that a person has fired a gun be determined and adopted by the police (for inverstigation), the department of justice (for prosecution) and the Supreme Court (for dispensation of justice).

    3. Mandatory penalties for a convicted offender must include no less than 10 years of jail time with hard labor, just compensation to the family of the victim (if any), and community service at emergency rooms every new year’s eve so they will experience the grief and trauma of the victims. Convicted offenders must not be eleigible for parole.

    Condolence to the family of Stepanie, and all the victims of this senselessness.

    Is this how we start the new Year? Is this how we drive away evil unlucky spirits that may bring bad luck? How many more lost limbs, blind eyes, second degree burns do we have to suffer as a people? How many more innocent lives do we have to offer on the altar of a misguided, evil, horrible “tradition” before we realize that this year end bloodbath may be the cause o why the Philippines can hardly pick itself up from the quagmire of stupidity.

    It looked like a ward with big dirty evaporator type air cooler.

    No major hospital was ready to accept her? No money? Where was the president?

    But shameless TV teams were comfortable to make the report from the poor ward?

    Indian goverment transferred a victim who caused public stir to Singapore after giving her best care in India and in the Philippines, in YOUR country, all what the shot girl got was a poor ward dying under TV cameras?

        As the shooting was accidental – the primitive treatment was not.

        She wasn’t connected to any machine, she deserved even the slim 5% chance to be among those who survive head gunshot wounds, what was shown is homicide.

        I don’t understand tagalog, but the hospital clearly was not equipped with neurosurgery operating room, at best they only have a neurologist who cannot handle such patients.

    Sa bawat sandali ng pagnanasang kasiyahan sana,  ay kapalit ang takot nang maaaring maging sanhi ng ating kamatayan bunga ng kayabangan ng mga walang habas na nagpapaputok ng mga baril na yan. Para tayong may nakatutok ng baril sa bawat isa, na parang anumang sandali ay tatama sa ating sentido gawa ng mga demonyong mayayabang na walang alam kundi kalabitin ang gatilyo ng kanilang mga armas sa araw ng selebrasyon.

    Para tayong nanga’gsisipaglaro ng Russian roulette, na anumang sandali ay mamamatay bunga ng kalapastanganan ng mga mamamatay-tao na mga iyan… Walang ligtas na lugar, nasa loob ka man  o labas ng iyong tahanan. Nakakasakit na ng kalooban, wag ko nang banggitin kung gaano kasakit ang nararamdaman ng mga pamilyang naging biktima nito dahil alam nating walang kasing sakit ito.

    The one who fired the shot knows he’s the one.  Since he fired his gun in the air not knowing where it’s going to fall, he needs to surrender to clear his conscience.  It was not a deliberate act to kill the little girl.
