Netizens touched by Chiara Zambrano's story about a marine who died in Marawi

Our soldiers have been the protectors and saviors of the people of Marawi as pro-Islamic State terror groups attacked the city.

According to reports, the siege death toll has now risen to 175, and one of them is Technica Sergeant Tap Dinglasan.

ABS-CBN reporter Chiara Zambrano had a chance to talk to Tap before they went to Mapandi Bridge to fight against the terrorists.

Their last short but sweet conversation just turned out to be the most touching and heartbreaking 'love story' ever.

Chiara wrote in her social media post:

"'Pagbalik ko, liligawan kita.'

Mahina lang ang pagkasabi niya, halatang biro lang para patawanin ang mga katabi niyang tropa. Eh kaso tumalbog yung tunog papunta sa'kin sa kabilang kalsada.

"Narinig ko yon," sabi ko. Nagtawanan sila. Si Tap di malaman kung saan magtatago at hiyang hiya.

"Bumalik ka muna nang buhay, saka tayo mag-usap," ang huli kong sinigaw. Kumaway siya nang nakangisi, sabay andar na ng truck papunta sa Mapandi Bridge.

Hindi na nakabalik si Tsg Dinglasan nang buhay noong araw na iyon. Siya ang kaisa-isang Marine na pumanaw noong araw na binawi ng Marines ang Mapandi Bridge mula sa kamay ng mga terorista. Ang buddy niya, iyang nakangiti sa tabi niya, ay nasugatan din.

Salamat sa serbisyo, Tap. Natuwa naman ako na kahit paano, lumusob ka sa laban nang nakatawa."

Netizens were deeply touched by their short 'love story' and the post was flooded with comments from netizens:
