Aga Muhlach’s boat explodes, driver hurt


MANILA, Philippines — A speedboat owned by actor Aga Muhlach exploded early Saturday, injuring the driver, his lawyer said.

In a statement from Michelle Juan forwarded to the Philippine Daily Inquirer by Muhlach’s manager Ethel Ramos, it said that Aga and his wife, Charlene were not on the boat when it exploded around 6 a.m. in Caramoan, Camarines Sur.

The driver, identified as Jerome Pervera, sustained injuries on his leg, arm, back, and face, but was expected to be released Sunday from the Caramoan emergency hospital.

Juan quoted initial reports as saying that the engine and gas tank ignited and then exploded.

Juan said that the Muhlachs have been secured in an undisclosed location in the province but were closely monitoring the situation.

“They [the Muhlachs] are relieved that no one was seriously injured, and are grateful for the outpouring of concern for their safety and security,” said Juan.

The explosion occurred in the midst of Aga Muhlach’s congressional bid in Camarines Sur in May although no link has yet been established between Saturday’s incident and his political campaign.

    How is it that people like these who don’t really contribute much to the society get to have boats and huge houses, while people like teachers, government doctors and scientists who actually change the nation for the better only earn a measly amount?

    Robredo and Muclach can provide fresh faces in Cam Sur politics. However, Villafuerte and Fuentebellas have massive war chests that can win elections via vote buying and election fraud. Sana madeplete funds ng mga trapo na to.
