MANILA — Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief, Police General Guillermo Lo Eleazar commended a rookie police officer for his selfless act of donating blood to a woman who lost a lot of blood from giving birth in Leyte province.
Patrolman Reymar Francisco Casiano, a member of the Baybay City Police Station, learned that the woman, who was rushed to the Immaculate Conception Hospital after giving birth, had a low hemoglobin count due to postpartum hemorrhage and urgently needed a transfusion of type A blood.
Casiano immediately proceeded to the Ormoc City hospital, where the woman was confined and donated his blood without hesitation to help save the woman.
PGen Eleazar praised the rookie cop for his unconditional act of kindness and heroism.
“Hindi man kaano-ano, hindi nagdalawang-isip si Patrolman Casiano na magbigay ng kanyang dugo para sagipin ang buhay ng taong nangangailangan,” PGen Eleazar said.
“Magandang katangian ito para sa isang bagong pulis at sana’y magpatuloy lamang siya sa pagtulong at pagmamalasakit sa kanyang kapwa,” he added.
The PNP chief expressed hope that other police officers will be inspired by Casiano’s good deed and the simple act of heroism. (AI/MTVN)
