John Regala’s niece narrated the last moments of the action star before he passed away on June 3, 2023, due to liver and kidney problems.
The 55-year-old action star has been staying at the New Era Hospital for three weeks and John’s relatives already accepted the worsening condition of the actor.
However, Nene Lour Billones Bendijo said that even in his last moments, John proved that he was an action star and fought for his life until the end.
According to Nene, John has been successfully revived but it only lasted for minutes.
“Actually po, kahapon, June 2, bumigay na siya tapos ilang minutes, bumalik o nabuhay siya uli. Sabi ng doktor, ‘Wala na talaga kaya hindi magtatagal, mawawala rin si Tito niyo,'” she narrated.
“Nakakaawa na rin po si Tito. Parang nahihirapan na rin siya. Pabalik-balik po siya sa ospital saka matagal na siyang hindi nakakapagsalita. Kapag kinakausap siya, patangu-tango na lang si Tito.” she added.
It can be recalled that John went viral on social media several times because of his plead for financial aid after losing all the income he saved from his prosperous career in showbiz.
Several celebrities helped John and never left him, including Sen. Robin Padilla who also expressed sadness for what happened to the actor.
