Franco Hernandez was with his co-hashtag member Tom Doromal when he passed away due to drowning last November 11, 2017.
KAMI learned from ABS-CBN Entertainment that Tom Doromal invited Franco and their friends to have a vacation in their resort at Davao Occidental.
Tom shared that on the day of their flight, it seems like something is preventing them to pursue the vacation when their names weren't called on their 6 a.m flight last November 9, 2017.
"Flight namin, 6 a.m. Tapos nung 6 a.m, nagulat kami ba't wala pa yung flight namin. 'Di ba pag sa airport, may last call. 'Nung 8 a.m na.. tinanong na namin, sabi "Oo kanina pa", hindi pa tinawag yung pangalan namin and everything. 'Tas pina-rebook na nila."
Tom also shared that at first, it was their plan to go on a falls but it rained a day before they arrived in Davao. So they decided to go on the white beach instead. But unfortunately, when they decided to head back at 2 p.m, their boat started to be filled with water.
Tom, Franco and the other boys jumped in the water, followed by the two remaining girls. Tom later did noticed that Franco and his girlfriend Nam was already at the deep part of the sea.
After that, Franco and Nam was rescued by the boatman but it was too late.
"After a while, kinausap ako sabi niya wala na daw."
"Tri-ny 'kong 'i-revive. Ni-rush namin sa hospital."
"Siguro sana hindi nalang kami.. siguro pumasok nalang sa isip namin na sabi ni God na 'wag ng tumuloy pero.. hindi kasi pumasok sa isip namin eh."
"Pero na-realize namin after na 'nung pangyayari."
"Ki-nompile namin yung mga signs na binigay ni Lord na "'wag na kayo tumuloy.""
KAMI admires Tom Doromal for being strong and brave in this kind of situation. We know that you did everything to save your friend, Tom!
