Malacañang called on the nation on Tuesday to make sure that no more children will die from stray bullets from irresponsible holiday revelers. This, after East Avenue Medical Center in Quezon City confirmed that Stephanie Nicole Ella, hit by a stray bullet on New Year’s Eve, passed away Tuesday afternoon.

 

" Together with the Filipino people, we extend our deepest sympathies to Stephanie's family. No one should experience the overwhelming heartbreak that her family is now enduring, especially during a season of celebration and hope," Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a report on ABS-CBNnews.com.

 

"For such a promising life to be lost in such a senseless way puts the burden on all of us to make certain that this tragedy is not repeated. We continue to call on all Filipinos: Let us consider the welfare of our countrymen by engaging in celebrations in a responsible and safe manner," he also said.

 

"Sana sa susunod na taon wala nang Nicole na tamaan, wala nang kagaya ni Nicole na batang paslit na wala namang kaalam-alam eh bigla na lang tatamaan ng bala, masisira ang buhay dahil sa kalokohan ng iilan," Jay Ella, the girl’s father, said.
