Bianca Manalo recovering after boat accident
Bianca Manalo is still in shock after being rescued from a capsized boat in Antique last March 29.
The beauty queen-actress was on vacation with fellow actress Ehra Madrigal and other friends when they were thrown overboard after big waves hit their boat. They were four kilometers away from the Antique coast.
Bianca’s boyfriend Antique Mayor Jonathan Tan related in an interview with ABS-CBN News that he had to swim back to the shore for hours to find help.
“I had to do something. Kung hindi ko gagawin 'yun, malulunod kaming lahat,” he said. “Nagpe-pray ako, sabi ko, ‘Lord, ayoko maging selfish; please save me so I can save them.’”
One of their companions, Jonathan’s cousin, died from the accident.
Meanwhile, Bianca’s manager Jonas Gaffud gave an update on her condition in a recent report by PEP.
“She is still there [in Antique], but she was able to go to church already today (Saturday, March 31),” Jonas said. “She was still crying when we were talking.”
We’re praying for Bianca’s speedy recovery!
