Janica Nam Floresca revealed her side of the story regarding the drowning incident that took the life of her boyfriend, the late Hashtag member Franco Hernandez.

In an interview with entertainment site PEP, Janica claimed that the statements of Hashtags member Tom Doromal and two bangkeros Rico Igalan and Efren Kilang were in contradiction to what had transpired.

Yung sa Rated K, ‘yung sinabi niya (Tom) na ni-rush daw sa ospital, 'yun ang gusto ko i-correct. Kasi hindi naman talaga ni-rush. And ako lang ‘yung nag-rush. Ako lang ‘yung sumama. Sumunod lang sila,” Janica said in the interview.

She also stressed that there were no life vests in the boat when they left the resort owned by Tom’s family in Don Marcelino, Davao Occidental, to go to White Sand Island in Sitio Ilib, North Lamidan.

Tapos, 'dun sa mga bangkero na, hindi ko alam kung bakit nila nasabi 'yun, na meron daw life vest. Ayaw daw namin suotin. Sila 'yung nagpatalon sa amin. Wala silang life vest. T'saka hindi kami dapat aalis 'dun hangga’t hindi namin sinusuot ‘yung life vest, di ba? Dapat ganon. Or kahit meron man lang sa banca na life vest na iniwan—as in, wala talaga,” she said.

Janica also relayed how their motorized banca was hit by big waves on their way back to Tom’s resort from White Sand Island. “Nung papunta ang lakas ng alon, e, pero kaya pa. Ta’s nung pabalik, as in sobrang malakas na siya. Yung tuluy-tuloy, para kaming nasa surf board na aahon kami tapos biglang bababa. As in, talaga ‘yung alon, nakikita talaga namin sa gilid na parang pataas-pababa. Last baba namin, may malaking alon, 'dun kami napasukan ng tubig,” she stated.

According to Nam, she and Franco were struggling to float in the water for 30 minutes before they reached the shore with the bangkero who came back to rescue them.

“Tapos 'nung nakarating na kami ng shore, ayun na si Franco, tapos ako. Ta’s parang ako 'yung ire-revive nila. Sabi ko, ‘Dun kayo lahat kay Franco.’ Sabi ko, ‘Gawin niyo lahat. Huwag kayo titigil hangga’t hindi nagigising.' Tapos pag-ahon sa amin, as in dilaw na kami, nangingitim na kami. Tapos si Franco, wala na siyang malay 'nun, pero may pulso pa siya. Meron pa talaga," she said.
