Did Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla Commit Suicide?
By Alon Calinao Dy: Actor and Cavite vice-governor Jolo Revilla accidentally suffered a gunshot wound while he was cleaning his pistol that hit his upper shoulder through and through.
He was immediately rushed to the Asian Hospital in Muntinlupa, but refused to give more details about the incident and denied that he attempted suicide according to their family attorney.
Despite what happened to the young Revilla, critics on Facebook are saying that he is simply looking for sympathy of the people due to the alleged involvement of his father, Senator Bong Revilla, in the pork barrel scam.
It is bad to compare a son from his father, although it is somewhat normal to be involved and affected from the ongoing case if one of the family members is on the trial. The young actor may be suffering from a depression, a disease which I considered but not common in the Philippines.
There were many speculations about the tragedy, but Revilla Family is asking for prayers and understanding of the incident.
As of this moment, the young politician is still in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Asian Hospital and Medical Center after he unintentionally shot himself.
