The remains of the Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) who died in Saudi Arabia due to brain aneurysm has been finally brought home in Ilocos Sur, arriving last night.
In a report by Bombo Radyo Vigan, Romella Bayatin, chief nurse in Dammam, said the remains of OFW Maribel Patubo arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on board a plane from Saudi Arabia.
From there, it was transported again and landed at the Laoag International Airport in Ilocos Norte last night.
Her husband, Joseph received her remains there.
Patubo’s older sister Merly Racoma told The Filipino Times they still don’t know the real cause why she got the illness. Aneurysm, one of top killers of OFWs in the UAE, is usually caused by a stressful lifestyle, doctors said.
Racoma said her 28-year-old sister was healthy when she left the Philippines last year to provide for her family.
“Para sa pamilya niya po at para matugunan ang mga pangangailangan nila lalo mga bata pa sila,” she said.
Joseph thanked the radio station, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the Overseas Workers’ Welfare Administration (OWWA) and others who helped their family bring the remains of her wife back home.
Last month, Patubo reportedly was rushed to the hospital by her employer. However, after the operation she went into coma. Days later, she passed away.
