Curfew violator allegedly dies in Cavite

Peñaredondo reportedly died after he was ordered to do 300 rounds of pumping exercise in Malabon Plaza, General Trias, Cavite on April 1. His cousin, Adrian Luceña, claimed that Peñaredondo was penalized by village guards after he was caught buying a drink past 6pm.

According to Luceña, Peñaredondo was initially ordered to do 100 rounds of the pumping exercise. However, since he and fellow violators were not in sync, they had to repeat the exercise.

Luceña revealed that Peñaredondo went home at 8:00 am on April 2.

Mayroon po kami hawak na video ng kuya ko kung paano po siya nahihirapan kumilos dahil sa pagpaparusang ginawa sa kanya...

Meanwhile, his live-in-partner Reichelyn Balce told Rappler that Peñaredondo came home being assisted by a fellow violator. Balce said that Peñaredondo had trouble moving that day.

Initially, Balce assumed that Peñaredondo was just experiencing extreme body pain. However, Peñaredondo started having seizures and lost his heartbeat hours later. Although he was revived, Peñaredondo eventually passed away later.

“Nu'ng nagpatulong po siya para umihi, doon na po siya nag-seizure. Nag-kombulsyon na po siya, nag-violet na po mukha niya. Wala na ‘yung heartbeat niya. Nagpatulong lang ako sa mga kapitbahay namin para i-CPR siya, doon lang bumalik heartbeat niya,” Balce told Rappler.

Devastated by the untimely passing of Peñaredondo, Balce urged authorities to just give simple punishment such as community service to quarantine violators to avoid such incidents.

“Sana sa susunod, pwede naman sigurong sitahin lang… Hindi naman tatambay eh, may bibilhin lang. Saka kung magpaparusa sila, ‘wag naman ganoon dahil hindi naman lahat ng tao ay physically fit. Community service, okay na ‘yun,” Balce said.

Meanwhile, General Trias police chief Police Lieutenant Colonel Marlo Nillo Solero contradicted the claims of Peñaredondo’s family saying that they only give lectures to violators.
