Bicolana Papal volunteer dies in Tacloban City

NAGA CITY-- The identity of the Papal mass volunteer who died earlier today in a freak accident has finally already been confirmed.

She was Kristel Mae Padasas, according to Fr. Amadeo Alvero, Information Communication Director of the Archdiocese Palo.

Padasas, 27, was from from Buhi, Camarines Sur.

According to media reports, Kristel Mae was a Manila-based volunteer for the Catholic Relief Services and a Yolanda aid worker.

She died after scaffolding holding speakers used during the mass collapsed on her.

Strong winds, brought by tropical storm Amang, caused the steel rods to give way, witnesses said.
The accident took place shortly after the mass, when Pope had left the Tacloban Airport to head for his next engagement in Palo, Leyte.

Padasas was rushed to a hospital, but died on the way.

She was declared dead on arrival at around 2 pm at St. Paul's Hospital in Tacloban City.

Department of Health Secretary Janette Garin told media that Padasas died due to massive blood loss.

The Pontiff has already been informed of her death and had already expressed his condolences through Vatican spokesperson Fr. Federico Lombardi.--BICOLSTANDARD.COM
