Sarah Lahbati's mother figures in drowning accident in Siargao

Sarah Lahbati flew to Siargao this morning, December 19, after her mother Esther suffered and survived through a drowning accident in Siargao Island last December 18.

In a series of Instagram stories, the actress shared that her mother drowned while island hopping and was saved from the powerful currents by her father, Abdel. However, she remained unconscious and was "vomiting blood". 

Sarah asked for prayers and information about Siargao healthcare from her four million strong followers.

She wrote, "I've been crying and shaking. This has never happened before. Thank God, my mom is conscious na, with dextrose and oxygen. She's resting because she lost a lot of blood when she vomited. She's been taking swimming lessons every day and has been good at it but we cannot fight mother nature...my dad saved her but she still lost a lot of blood and was unconscious. They had to fight the current to get to the boat."

She continued, "She's better now and slowly recovering at the clinic."

Sarah also thanked everyone who reached out to help. She enthused, "Thank you to everyone who called and helped us. I'm so grateful to you...thank you for all the prayers."

Sending you our prayers, Sarah!

Sarah's fiance Richard Gutierrez stars in the upcoming Vice Ganda comedy "Fantastica", which will premiere in cinemas nationwide this Christmas as Star Cinema's official entry to the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival.
