Thankfully, Megan was not injured, but the traumatic experience left the actressand beauty queen a fear. Megan said:
“Nagkaroon ako ng fear of flying after ng Haiti incident kasi hanggang ngayon, takot ako sa turbulence, as in naiiyak ako kapag may turbulence. Di ba, 'yung Haiti incident namin, nanginig 'yung platform tapos nahulog kami. So, for me, 'yung mga nagse-shake, kahit sa stage, kapag alam kong hindi masyadong stable, bumababa na ako. Sobrang ingat na ingat ako. (I had a fear of flying after the Haiti incident because until now, I am afraid of turbulence, as in I am crying if there is a turbulence. In the Haiti incident, the platform shook and we fell. So, for me, everything that shakes, even the stage, when I knew that it was not too stable, I step down. I am really careful.)”
