Actress Azenith Briones was one of those who were injured during the attack at Resorts World Manila on June 2. DZMM reporter Zandro Ochona reported that Azenith’s husband, Eleuterio Reyes, 59, was one of those who died from the said incident.
"Alas-12 nangyari e. Nasa second floor ako. Bumibili ako ng pagkain. 'Nung nakita ko yun, pumasok na ko sa kitchen. Nagpatulong na ako sa mga staff ng kitchen tapos yung suffocation nakatakas kami, nakatalon kami. Asawa ko kasama ko, may sisingilin lang ako," she shared with ABS-CBN News.
She was forced to jump from second floor to ground floor to escape from the scene and she didn’t hear about her husband until the news broke that there were 35 casualties from the tragedy.
A gunman who entered the casino area started shooting, set the casino tables on fire, and soon committed suicide.
Azenith was part of the film Temptation Island.
