Actress Pilar Pilapil survives assault by playing dead and getting quick medical aid
(SPOT.ph) Actress Pilar Pilapil survived being stabbed multiple times in an assault last week in Marikina by playing dead and seeking immediate medical help, her brother Leo said according to GMA News Online.
Pilapil was stabbed in the face, neck, arms and armpit. Her left lung partially collapsed after being hit as well, according to her attending physician Raymond Resurreccion.
The initial investigation of the police showed that two armed men forced their way into the Kia that Pilapil and her niece, Rosalie Jakosalem Peñas, were in. The car was moving slowly and the doors were unlocked when the attackers forced their way into the vehicle, Pilapil’s brother said. The men took Peñas and left Pilapil in a grassy area in Antipolo. The police are still searching for Peñas, reports GMA News Online.
