MANILA - The chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) on Friday appealed for more prayers for the fast healing of two colleagues who were among those in the helicopter crash in Laguna last March.

“Unfortunately, 2 pa sa classmates ko ang struggling. They are both in the intensive care unit at syempre very maselan sila,” said PNP chief Archie Gamboa.

Gamboa was with Major Generals Jovic Ramos and Mariel Magaway, his comptrollership and intelligence heads, respectively; Brig. Gen. Bernard Banac, the PNP spokesman; an aide, a technician and 2 pilots when the 2-year-old Bell 429 chopper crashed in San Pedro, Laguna on March 5.

The accident left Ramos and Magawas still in critical condition.

“We continuously pray na sana they recover their health and we hope they could live their normal lives again,” he said.

Gamboa said relatives of the two generals could not visit them due to the present coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

“Hindi rin sila mabisita ng kanilang mga kamag-anak dahil na rin sa threat ng COVID-19,” he said.
