Gordon grieves for Walker
MANILA, Philippines—Philippine Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon expressed his condolences for Paul Walker in an Associated Press video Tuesday morning, two days after the actor’s fatal crash.
“I would like to express my deep condolences and appreciation to Paul Walker, who died on his way to giving our people some support for this very, very humongous disaster and very tragic of all tragedies,” said Gordon who was at a turn over ceremony of pay loaders that Chinese companies donated to the Philippines.
“And his death has exacerbated the tragedy.”
Walker died in a car crash after attending a charity event for the survivors of Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international codename: Haiyan).
“He has been helping the country and all of us mourn his lost,” Gordon said.
