The whole nation was saddened by the death of Hashtag member Franco Hernandez earlier this November. Franco was robbed of the bright career ahead of him after he died from drowning while vacationing in Davao City.
Almost a month after his death, the young promising dancer’s mother has come forward with shocking revelations about her son’s death. In a controversial Facebook comment, Marissa Hernandez Lumanlan revealed the curious circumstances after Franco drowned.
As opposed to the given statements of Franco’s friend and Hashtags member Tom Doromal, Franco Hernandez was not immediately rushed to the hospital after being rescued. Marissa Hernandez was quoted as saying:
“Paglilinaw lang, hindi sya ni-rush sa hospital ng mga bangkerong nag-rescue sa kanya. (Kahit ang paniwala namin ay dadalin sya.) Dinala lang sya sa bahay nila Tom dahil may nurse daw doon. Unfortunately doon sya namatay. Pero nagpumilit pa rin si Nam na dalhin si Franco sa ospital dahil umaasa pa na marerevive sya.”
This claim is also against the testimonies of the two boat drivers who also released their statements. Moreover, the grieving mother claimed that more details will be revealed soon in a second interview. Marissa said that it will be “a very crucial part of the story”.
“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.”
On the other hand, Franco Hernadez’ girlfriend, Janica Nam Floresca, seems to be on the same page with Marissa. Recently, Janica shared her accounts of what really happened, as she was with Franco in his last moments.
In a controversial revelation, Janica claimed that the boat drivers urged her and Franco to jump off the boat and swim to the nearby shore instead. Despite not knowing how to swim, the two of them jumped. Unbeknownst to them a big wave that separated them from the others broke at that moment.
The two struggled to breathe until rescue came. They were the last to be rescued, but Janica claimed that Franco was already unconscious by that time. Efforts to revive him while still in the resort were in vain, and it was at that time that they agreed to rush him to the hospital.
