Kin of plane crash victims say owner not yet communicating

PLARIDEL, Bulacan -- Noel dela Rosa, father of the victims in the plane crash incident here last Saturday, is disgusted that until now the owner of the ill-fated light aircraft has not yet communicated with them.

Dela Rosa lamented that the owner of the Piper PA-23 Apache operated by Lite Air Express has not yet approached him to acknowledge responsibilities to the victims.

He told reporters that his wife, Rissa, three children John John, Timothy and Trisha, together with family matriarch Luisa, all died in the plane crash that totally destroyed their house at Purok 3 Barangay Lumang Bayan in this town.

They are scheduled to be buried on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the Agnaya Public Cemetery also in this town.

The wake for the remains of dela Rosa family members is being held at the community chapel of Barangay Lumang Bayan here.

Dela Rosa also said he still cannot decide on what he will do when he meets the plane owner.

He appealed to the local government of Plaridel and to the Provincial Government of Bulacan to help him talk to the plane owner.

Dela Rosa said he was told that the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) and the plane owner would coordinate with them once the investigation on the plane crash has been made.

He added the Provincial Government of Bulacan, together with the municipal government of Plaridel and Bulacan 2nd District Rep. Apol Pancho, has already extended assistance to his family. (PNA)
