Aguirre wrote in a Facebook post:

"Hindi ko po akalain na sa harapan ko pa babaksak ang isang runner na halos wala ng buhay... Di ko siya kilala pero dahil sa kapwa ko siya runner kaya tinulungan namin siya. 42k ang tinakbo niya and between 48 to 55 yrs old na siya."

"Two lang kaming runner at pareho pa kaming babae... at isang mama na di runner ang tumulong para lang maiupo siya at matulungang huminga... Walang may alam sa amin sa first aid. Samantalang nadaanan ko ang mga ambulance na nakatambay lang."

"Dapat sana kung may ambulance lang at nakabitan siya ng oxygen, malamang buhay pa siya. Almost 20 to 30 minutes na kami at umiiyak na ko kasi nakita ko na maputla na siya at nag-chi-chill ang dila."
