Jesse Robredo confirmed dead, DILG secretary dies in plane crash on August 18

Yahoo! news confirmed Tuesday morning, August 21, that the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary Jesse Robredo has been found dead after two days of intense search and rescue operations following a plane crash at around 4:30 pm on Saturday, August 18. He was 54.

His lifeless body and remains of his companions, the two pilots named Captain Jessup Bahinting and Nepalese flight student Kshitiz Chand, were recovered at the crash site off the coast of Masbate City by a British volunteer technical diver at a depth of about 180 feet below the sea, more or less 800 meters away from the shore, at around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday.

As of now, Robredo's body is in Masbate and will be flown to his hometown Naga City, Yahoo! news said.

An emotional DOTC Secretary Mar Roxas noted that Robredo's remains are in "sensitive state", given that the body has been underwater for two days now.

DILG secretary Jesse Robredo was survived by his wife, Atty. Lenny Robredo, and three children.

Last Saturday, secretary Jesse Robrardo and two pilots disappeared when their small plane, a four-seat, twin-engine Piper Seneca, crashed into the sea while they were attempting an emergency landing.

The aircraft took off from Cebu city and was heading to Robredo’s hometown of Naga city to meet his family when the pilot radioed the Masbate airport that they would be making an emergency landing.

DOTC Secretary Manuel Roxas II stated that the plane was not able to make it to the airport and crashed into the sea. Robredo’s aide who was aboard the plane with him was able to jump out and be rescued.
