Doctor’s Post Prior to Plane Crash Goes Viral
Manila, Philippines — The last post of a young doctor who was a victim of a medical evacuation plane crash last Sunday night, March 29, has become viral as many netizens claim they had goosebumps upon reading the post.
The sister of Dr. Cenover Nicandro “Nicko” Bautista, Ria Bautista, shared the last post of his brother via Facebook while also sharing her grief over the demise of his brother.
Based on his post, he was praying that the COVID-19 pandemic that the whole world is experiencing at the moment “to be over.” At some parts of his post, he even cracked a joke on trying to look good while fixing his hair. On top of that, he also encouraged people to fight the pandemic.
“I can’t wait for all of this to be over,” he said. “For all of the worrying to be done. For all the uncertainties to end. I can’t wait to go back to how it was. To see my friends. To drink with my cousins. To kiss my niece. To hug my dad. And for my sister to be well. I can’t wait to not think about if I’m going to be sick or not.”
“Let’s fight this, and in all honesty, I’m scared as hell,” he further added.
Ria said that she is saddened to lose his brother on that flight, “in such a horrific way.”
She ended the post honoring his brother “forever” and saying how he loves his brother.
Nicko was part of the surgery department at Mandaluyong City Medical Center.
He was one of the eight people on board who died on the spot after the plane burst into flames prior to taking off.
The young doctor is a graduate of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila College of Medicine way back 2014.
Their plane was en route to Haneda, Japan to bring a patient there for treatment, said the Office of the PLM President through their page.
