Trip to China was parents’ treat to two daughters

By Sara Susanne D. Fabunan | Oct. 31, 2013 at 12:00am

It was a happy vacation that turned tragic for the Bunyi family after Dr. Rizalina Bunyi was killed by a car that crashed into a group of pedestrians in Tianenmen Square in Beijing, which also injured her husband, Dr. Nelson Bunyi, and their two daughters.
In a television interview, Dr. Rizalina’s father, Rodrigo Camia,  said the trip to Beijing was Rizalina and Nelson’s treat to their daughters Francesca Isabel and Mikaela, who had  good grades in the previous semester.
Both daughters are taking up Medicine.
A son, Jolo, who is also taking up Medicine, did not join the trip.
Camia said Dr. Nelson and Mikaela sustained fractures.
The rest of the family, who are based in Cavite, learned of the tragedy after Francesca texted her brother in his condo near UST to inform him about the accident.
The Foreign Affairs Department on Tuesday sent a representative from the embassy in Beijing to visit the family in the hospital.
DFA Spokesperson Assistant Secretary Raul Hernandez said the embassy will provide the family with the necessary assistance.
But Camia said Dr. Nelson wanted to go home for his and her daughter’s operation.
The Philippine Medical Association, meanwhile, appealed for the government’s help in repatriating the remains of Dr. Bunyi and assisting her injured family.
The DFA, meanwhile, said it is now coordinating with Chinese authorities on the repatriation for the remains of Dr. Nazalina and the injured family members.
“Our embassy in Beijing is coordinating with the Public Security Bureau with regard the hospital/medical needs of the victims and to the process of repatriating the injured Filipinos and the remains of their family member who was killed in the incident,” Hernandez said in a text message on Wednesday.
Hernandez said that the Philippine embassy in China would continue to coordinate with the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau on the matter of repatriation and the ongoing investigation of the incident. With AFP
