Remembering Wowowee Tragedy

Id like to pay tribute to the family and victims of this tragic incident. It’s been a year since the stampede in ultra aka Wowowee Tragedy…

“… a supposed joyous event stunned the whole nation as 74 were killed and 350 injured in a stampede outside ULTRA as thousands flocked to watch Wowowee’s first anniversary celebration. It was most specially tragic for the show’s host Willie Revillame, who only had the best of intentions for all the followers of the program. “I was in total shock.” Willie sorrowfully said in a tribute on showbiz oriented talk show..” – news a year ago…

I can’t help but pity those other network that’s taking advantage of this accident. Airing unbalance, sensationalized news report and segments is not even lessening the pain and loss of the victims. So much for those ‘rating’ hungry competitions.

It’s not ABSCBN’s fault. Not the Engineers of the Stadium. Nor the negligence of the security personnels. Neither do the starving pinoys. Take a look at the big picture and see for yourself.
