Just days before 2020, a tragic road accident claimed the lives of two Filipino and injuring four others.
Two of the victims of the crash are sisters from La Union, who were just having a picnic near Lucky Plaza mall in Singapore, last December 29.
Arcely and Arlyn Nucos worked in Singapore as domestic helpers for 30 years. They were at the wrong place and at the wrong time when a black Honda car crashed by the pavement railing then plunging several meters near the mall where the sisters were located.
Arlyn, 50-years-old was pronounced expired on the spot of the accident while Arcely, 56 is currently unconscious.
According to the brother of the two victims, they only learned about the tragic incident after he called his wife who is also in Singapore working as a domestic helper. From here, he was shocked to know that he lost one of his sisters while the other one is still unconscious.
Other relatives of the Nucos sisters hinted that something is wrong after the two missed their weekly video call with them.
Alice and Reynaldo, other siblings of the victim are already coordinating with the Philippine Embassy in Singapore for the repatriation of the remains of Arlyn as well as the hospitalization of Arcely.
Before the incident, the two women even sent money as ‘aguinaldo’ for their siblings in their province. The two Filipina had been domestic helpers in Singapore since 1990 and Arcely is supposed to return to the Philippines for vacation next month.
