The truth behind Franco’s death continues to unfold.
It was just recently when Janica Nam Floresca finally came forward with her statement about the drowning incident which cost the life of her beau, Franco Hernandez.
Franco’s mom, Marissa Hernandez Lumanlan, on the other hand, seems to be on the same page with her son’s girlfriend. It was on Nam’s Twitter where she posted the grieving mother’s controversial Facebook comment. Franco’s mother said:
“Paglilinaw lang, hindi siya nirush sa hospital ng mga bangkerong nagrescue sa kanya. (Kahit ang paniwala namin ay dadalhin sya.) Dinala lang sya sa bahay nila Tom dahil may nurse daw doon. Unfortunately doon siya namatay. Pero nagpumilit pa din si Nam na dalhin si Franco sa ospital dahil umaasa pa na marevive sya. We are waiting for part 2 of this interview dahil hindi sinama ang [paglalahad] ng panayam nung pagkakuha kay Franco sa shore at dinala kela Tom. A very crucial part of the story.”
Netizens altogether reacted to the bereft mother’s comment. Here’s what they had to say:
Janica Nam, in an exclusive interview with PEP last December 1, 2017, said that there were “loopholes” in the statement given by the two boatmen who were with them when the incident transpired. These boatmen, who were identified as Rico Igalan and Efren Kilang, were interviewed in the ABS-CBN morning show, “Umagang Kay Ganda” wherein they said that they didn’t fail to advise the group to wear their life jackets.
Days after the said interview, Tom Doromal finally spoke about the incident in “Rated K”, wherein he admitted to inviting Franco and Janica Nam for a vacation on their private resort in Davao Occidental. He also claimed that Franco was rushed to the hospital.
However, these statements were contradicted by Janica Nam herself. She said:
“Yung sa Rated K, yung sinabi niya [Tom] na ni-rush daw sa ospital, yun ang gusto kong i-correct. Kasi hindi naman talaga ni-rush. And ako lang yung nag-rush. Ako lang yung sumama. Sumunod lang sila.”
Despite not wearing a life vest and not knowing how to swim, Janica Nam revealed that the bangkeros asked them to jump and swim.
“Tapos, dun sa mga bangkero na—hindi ko alam kung bakit nila nasabi yun—na meron daw life vest. Ayaw daw namin suotin. Sila yung nagpatalon sa amin. Wala silang life vest.
Tsaka hindi dapat kami aalis dun hangga’t hindi namin sinusuot yung life vest namin, di’ba? Dapat ganun. Or kahit meron lang sa banca na life vest na naiwan—as in, wala talaga.”
Also present in the said interview were Franco’s parents.
Janica Nam hinted this revelation on her Twitter two weeks ago. On Twitter, she wrote cryptic messages such as:
“Don’t worry love, the real story about what happened to you will come out soon…like you’ve always wanted.”
“The truth will always prevail.”
There are still impending details that are yet to be spilled. We hope that in time, things will fall right into place.
