The ashes of Neriza Fojas, the Filipina who died when she got trapped inside a burning limousine in San Francisco, California, was brought home to her family in Tarlac, GMA News TV’s flagship newscast reported Tuesday evening.
The victim’s husband, Carlo Moya, brought the ashes from the United States to the Philippines, a report on State of the Nation with Jessica Soho said.
Moya and Fojas were married in a civil ceremony last year. They had planned to have a church wedding in the Philippines on June 19.
Fojas was having a celebration with eight of her girl friends inside the limousine, when it caught fire on the night of May 5.
They were heading across the San Mateo-Hayward bridge in San Francisco for a bachelorette party at a hotel. Aside from Fojas, four of her friends also died, while the other four survived.
Mechanical failure has loomed as a probable cause of the limousine fire, according to a Reuters report on June 7. — Rouchelle R. Dinglasan/ELR, GMA News
