A report from Ilocos Norte says former President Fidel V. Ramos was allegedly rushed to hospital following a vape explosion on Tuesday afternoon.
In an email sent to OKd2 by one of our Northern Luzon writers Cynthia Manalang, Ramos was allegedly rushed to hospital by his personal driver at around 4PM today, March 14, 2017.
Due to an emergency matter, Ramos was reportedly brought to the nearest Ilocos Norte provincial hospital, but was transferred to a private hospital under cover after an hour.
The report says no member of media was informed about the ex-president’s condition as the hospital guards were immediately informed by his driver-bodyguard not to inform the media.
According to Manalang who is a registered nurse in the same hospital when Ramos was brought, the ex-presidents face was covered with blood and cannot be identified upon entering the emergency room. Doctors found-out that Ramos lost three teeth and suffered a broken lower jaw that requires minor surgery. Manalang said she lost track of Ramos after the transfer.
Fidel Ramos is a known cigar smoker, but decided to quit smoking more than a year ago after his daughter, Josephine Martinez Ramos died due to lung cancer last 2011. She was 54 years old.
Other sources also tell Ramos has been using a vape (electronic cigarette) for more than eight months already.
There are already a number of vape explosions in other countries, but this is the first reported incident from the Philippines. Oddly, the victim is VIP.
