Autopsy report says grade 5 pupil did not die due to teacher's slap – Antipolo police chief

Antipolo Police Chief, Lt.Col. Ryan Manongdo said that the fifth-grade pupil in Antipolo, Rizal, may not have died from the teacher’s slap but due to arteriovenous malfunction (AVM), based on the autopsy result released to them on Wednesday, October 11.

In an interview with DZRH’s Dos Por Dos, Manongdo explained that the doctor told them that the deceased student, Francis Jay Gumikib, has a rare condition in the brain in which his little veins are tangled.

The Antipolo Police chief said that the autopsy showed that Gumikib’s death had no involvement in the teacher’s slap, as it took more than 48 hours from the incident before the latter experienced the symptoms.

“Ang summary, ang cause of death sa kanyang anak ay hindi maire-relate sa pananampal na naganap noong September 21. Bagkus ito ay maiko-connect sa isang napaka-rare na kondisyon sa utak, yung tinatawag na arteriovenous malformation," Manongdo explained.

“It simplified na ang mga ugat na napakaliit ay nagbuhol-buhol. Nag-rapture lang noong panahon na sakit na sakit na ng ulo ng bata. Napaka-rare na hindi talaga made-detect at made-detect mo siya kapag tapos na ang lahat. Wala itong manifestation na sumasakit ang ulo,” he continued.

When asked if the slapping incident was a major factor in triggering Gumikib’s condition, Manongdo said that it was far from it, per the doctor’s explanation.

“September 21 [ang pananampal], 26 lang nag-manifest ang signs ng AVM. Kahit mga doktor na ang nagsabi na parang traydor ito [AVM] na biga at malalaman na lang kung kailan huli na ang lahat. Di natin siya kayang i-detect kung walang nararamdaman. Nalinaw na ng autopsy report na hindi connected ang pananampal doon sa pagkamatay ng bata," he further discussed.

With the autopsy result, the Antipolo Police are still convinced that the teacher, Mirasol Quizon, slapped Gumikib based on the statements left by the witnesses.Meanwhile, instead of filing a case of homicide against the teacher, they will file a case against the teacher for violating Section 10 of Republic Act 7610, or the Other Acts of Neglect, Abuse, Cruelty, or Exploitation, and Other Conditions Prejudicial to the Child's Development.
