MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - Miss Earth 2008 Karla Paula Henry was stabbed while she was on her way back to her condominium in Mandaluyong City Thursday morning.
Reports said Henry was stabbed in the back by a drunk tenant, who was later identified as Jherome Quibuyen.
The beauty queen was rushed to St. Luke's Medical Center in Taguig City where she was declared out of danger.
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News, Henry related in detail how the incident happened.
"He didn't stop... he continued pa until I started screaming na. That's when he stopped and he ran upstairs. Namukhaan ko talaga siya kasi he changed his shirt. I know his shirt. I know it so well and I know his face," she said.
According to Henry, she does not see any reason why Quibuyen would attack her.
Quibuyen, on the other hand, denied the incident. "Suspect pa lang po ako. Hindi po ako naglalasing doon. Sa condo po ako nag-iinom," he said.
Quibuyen will be charged with a frustrated murder case.
The Fil-Canadian beauty won the Miss Earth pageant in 2008, becoming the first Filipino to win the title. - Report by Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
