Mass burial for Matalam road accident victims

Father Jun Balatero and Father Peter Geremia will offer the funeral mass at the chapel.

Nine persons were killed and 34 others were injured when the Isuzu Elf they were riding fell into a ravine. The villagers from Tulunan were on their way to attend a funeral in Matalam on April 11 when they figured in the accident.

Gloria Campano, a relative of the victims said they don’t blame anybody for the tragedy that killed some of her loved ones and relatives.

It’s purely accident and we don’t blame anyone, not even the driver of the Isuzu elf. We believed that the incident is God’s will,” Campano said.

The parish priest of San Isidro Labrador here thanked parishioners for extending financial and material assistance to the families of those who were killed or wounded.

I am amazed that after sending my sulat panawagan to the parishes, financial as well as material assistance poured in from various areas in the Diocese of Kidapawan,” Balatero said.
