Renee “Alon” dela Rosa, composer of the OPM hit song ‘Pusong Bato’ song died at the age of 61 on Wednesday, September 15.
The composer died outside of a hospital located at Brgy. San Bartolome, Novaliches.
The cause of death was reportedly due to a lack of oxygen.
In a Facebook post on September 14, Justine dela Rosa, the daughter of Alon, asked the people for financial help and prayers for her father.
“Hello po, humihingi po kami ng kahit kaunting tulong pambili lang po ng oxygen para sa aking papa na si ‘Alon’ nandito po kami ngayon sa district hospital.
“Any amount will do po and prayers na rin po. Salamat.”
Justine later shared that her father badly needed oxygen and to be admitted to a hospital.
“ASAP: Need Oxygen Tank na may laman. at Private Hospital na rin po around QC na may avail na room po, please,” she wrote.
3 hours later around 7 pm, the singer-dancer posted once again that her father is still in the ambulance because there are no available rooms in the hospitals.
“Badly needed, private hospital with available room. Or baka may kakilala po kayo na tao na marrefer nyo po sa amin. Please po need ma-admit sa ospital ng papa ko. We need your help po.
“PS: nasa ambulance pa rin po si papa at kanina hapon pa po sila paikot-ikot sa iba’t ibang ospital wala po nag-aadmit dahil puno po yung rooms.”
According to Justine, they already inquired 35 hospitals, but all of them rejected her father.
“35 hospitals na nalibot namin, bakit po puro reject? Lord, tulungan nyo po kami,” she said.
Around 6 am Justine still posted that they were looking for a registered nurse to look after her father.
But around 9 am, she sadly announced that her father already passed on.
“Wala na po si Papuy Renee Alon,” she posted along with crying emojis.
According to PEP, Justine shared that they visited more than 40 hospitals, but her father failed to get a room. In addition, she said that some health professionals even mistreated them.
“Grabe po, 40+ na hospital po ang pinuntahan namin at maski isa po, wala man lang po nagbigay ng first aid, dextrose at yung oxygen tank po.
“Natagtag po si papa sa byahe, kasi po, naghahanap po kami hospital.
“Grabe po yung mga ospital na pinuntahan po namin. Nagmamakaawa na nga po kami kahit sa labas na lang po kami, pero ayaw po nila.
“Yung iba po tinataboy pa po kami at sinusungitan po. Na-record po namin yung ibang trato po sa amin ng mga ospital, kung paano kami sinungitan,” she said.
