According to Jenilyn P. Somido, the fourth-year BS Nursing student in the said post, the incident occurred at the Nabua Veterans Park where she happened to drop by for an afternoon snack. Her attention was caught by a woman seeking help. With her was a middle-aged man lying on the floor unconscious.

Somido immediately came to his aid and requested an ambulance as well.
