KAMI noticed that most Filipinos follow their religion’s traditions, even when they’re abroad.
Such was the case of these six friends, who were going to St. Joseph’s Church in Abu Dhabi coming from Dubai.
According to The Filipino Times, they were out on a Good Friday - a day later than the usual Visita Iglesia in the Philippines.

Unfortunately, their rented Mitsubushi Pajero stalled in the middle of Al Shahama Highway and some stepped out of the vehicle to check out what happened.
They did not notice that a rushing SUV slammed their car from behind, killing those who went out to check the problem.
There were four of them – Veronica Dulay, 39; Lord Christian Elli, 29; Daniel Paulo Paulino Paraiso, 31; and Marvin Mendoza, 28 – whose remains are now at the Khalifa Hopspital morgue in Abu Dhabi.
The two who remained in the car – Mary Ann Mendoza and Anna Paula Paulino – are currently in critical condition at the Al Rahba Hospital, also located in Abu Dhabi.
The Abu Dhabi police is still investigating the matter, so keep your eyes peeled on this page for further updates.
We send our condolences to the family and friends of these people. Let KAMI know that you care by sharing yours in the comments.
