article imagePregnant woman stabbed 24 times, shot and left for dead, survives

By Leo Reyes     Nov 26, 2010 in Crime
A pregnant 23-year old woman was stabbed 24 times by his attackers, shot once, thrown into deep ravine and left for dead, miraculously survived and lives.
Grace Capistrano, a police informer from Angono, Philippines, crawled to safety upon hearing barking dogs in the area near the place where she was dumped and managed to reach a small hut of a 78-year old farmer Mariano Pelayo about 50 meters away from the place whre she was left for dead.
Capistano, who survived the seven hour ordeal despite her gunshot and stab wounds, knocked at Pelayo's door and asked the 78-year old farmer to bring her to the nearest hospital. It took the old man more than an hour before he could get a public ride to the town police station.
Amazed at how Capistrano survived, he said: “That girl was so strong. She could still walk and talk [despite her wounds], and she was even pregnant. She just asked for three glasses of water,” Pelayo said.

Capistrano was a “witness” to the hulidap rackets (robbery and extortion) of policemen in Rizal, according to Calabarzon police director Chief Superintendent Samuel Pagdilao Jr.
Mariquit is based in the Cainta police station; Natividad was recently assigned to Rizal province from the regional police office.
Laguna police director Cruz quoted reports saying that Capistrano was “an informant of the hulidap.”
The suspects who were apprehended by their fellow policemen were surprised to find out how the victim managed to survived and get back at them.
The suspects who are now detained at the Pagsanjan, Laguna Police Station were charged with abduction and frustrated murder.
