Manila, Philippines ? Cavite Vice Gov. Jolo Revilla, a son of jailed Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla, was rushed to a hospital for a gunshot wound on his upper right chest, Cavite Gov. Juanito Victor Remulla said. “He sustained a gun shot that went through his upper right chest. I don’t know how it happened,” Remulla said in a phone interview Saturday. “He’s alive.”
Revilla was brought to Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa City, according to Senator Revilla’s talent manager Lolit Solis. She said the younger Revilla was hit hard by his father’s incarceration. “Jolo idolizes Bong. Jolo lost a source of strength,” Solis told Inquirer. “It’s too painful,” she said. Remulla said the incident happened “this (Saturday) morning,” although he did not provide any more details as of this time. Clifford Elorde, media officer for Senator Revilla, said the family would issue a statement soon. “The Revillas are asking for prayers for Jolo,” Elorde said.
[Update] “Nagkamali ako.” (I made a mistake.) That was the admission of Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla on Sunday after shooting himself in what his lawyer Raymond Fortun said. In an interview, Revilla family’s spokesperson Atty. Raymond Fortun recounted his conversation with Revilla.
“I said ‘How are you,’ and Revilla said, ‘Ito Atty. (Fortun), nagkamali ako e,'” Fortun related. Fortun described Revilla’s current condition as “serious yet stable.”
However, Jolo Revilla will undergo an operation to stop internal bleeding sustained from the gunshot wound in the upper right portion of his chest.
In a post on her Facebook account, Cavite Representative and Jolo’s mother Lani Mercado Revilla said that CT scan results showed bleeding in Jolo’ chest.
“Pls Pray for VG Jolo. CT scan results show bleeding inside his chest. A tube will be inserted to drain the blood. His operation will be at 2pm.We need your prayers,” the Mercado-Revilla said.
Meanwhile, detained Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. will ask for a 24-hour furlough to visit his son at the Asian Hospital.Fortun said the furlough would be filed before the Sandiganbayan by Monday or Tuesday. Revilla was said to be cleaning a .40 Glock handgun on Saturday when it accidentally went off.
