ABS-CBN extends assistance ABS-CBN is extending every assistance to all those who were killed and injured in the Wowowee stampede yesterday at the Philsports Arena (formerly Ultra). The central help desk for assistance and missing persons is now at Bantay Bata 163.


ABS-CBN has deployed 12 teams of social workers from the ABS-CBN Foundation, as well as volunteers from St. Paul University, to visit the families of those who died and provide them assistance in the wake and burial arrangements. There is also a team going around hospitals and funeral parlors for information logistics and other requirements of the families of the victims.

As of 12 noon, February 5, a total of 74 people were killed and 408 were injured. There were 184 persons who have been reunited with their respective relatives. The casualties were brought to Arlington Funeral Homes in Pasig and Quezon City and Loyola Memorial Chapels in Guadalupe, Makati. There were still five unidentified bodies at Arlington Pasig, one unidentified and five unclaimed bodies at Loyola Guadalupe.

ABS-CBN is also providing continued medical treatment for those who were injured or have suffered minor trauma. Some of the injured and those who needed follow-up treatment were attended to yesterday at the Quirino Labor Hospital and East Avenue Medical Center, which offered free medical services.

Starting tomorrow, Wowowee will devote a week-long program to public service and running news coverage about the tragedy. Meanwhile, Wowowee host Willie Revillame will take a one-week leave from the program to visit the families of the victims and those who were injured in the accident.
