A hero to Lipeños! Lipa Mayor Eric Africa lauds pilot who safely landed distressed PAL plane
Lipa Mayor Eric Africa is far from Los Angeles, but his pride in his kababayan knows no bounds.
Africa lauded Philippine Airlines pilot Capt. Triston Ray Abracia Simeon, who safely landed a plane back at LAX after it experienced engine trouble in the air.
In a Facebook post, Africa said he takes his hat off to Simeon, a Lipa native.
The whole city is proud of him, he added.
Simeon is a hero not just to his passengers, but to Lipa as well!
“Lahing Lipeño, Capt. Triston Ray Abracia Simeon, nagpakita ng tapang upang mailigtas ang Flight PR113. Hats off po, mula kay Mayor Eric Africa at sa mga kababayan niyo dito sa Lipa City!#TaalNaLipeño,” Africa posted.
