We request everyone to please please please pray for Tara, a very young lady who was shot in the head this early morning during a robbery. She is a musician (guitarist for Saffron Speedway) and artist with a ready smile for everyone and warmth about her that is rare.

Today is also her birthday. She is spending it at the hospital in highly critical condition. Please make your birthday wish for her right now and pray that she not only survive this ordeal but also come out as good as she was before this nightmare happened.

Robber shoots lady who refused to give up laptop
08/06/2008 | 08:56 AM

MANILA, Philippines - A 23-year-old woman is now in critical condition after being shot in the head early Wednesday morning after she attempted to wrestle her laptop away from a thief in Cainta, Rizal.

A report by radio dzBB’s Sam Nielsen said the unidentified thief used a .38 caliber pistol to shoot the victim identified by the Cainta police as Tara Santelices of Brookside Subdivision in Cainta town.

Santences’ companion Joyce Mejias, who was riding the Marikina-bound jeepney with the victim at the time of the incident, said the suspect declared a holdup while the jeepney was moving along Felix Ave. in Cainta.

But when the victim tried to wrestle back her bag containing a laptop, the assailant immediately shot her, took some of the passengers' bags and immediately fled the scene. - Johanna Camille Sisante, GMANews.TV

according to joee, she even thinks that the driver might have been in on it also. basta simpleng holdup lang.. i'm not sure whether or not tara fought back or if there was any kind of struggle.. i dont even know kung anong nakuha nila from them. basta the gun went off and si tara yung tinamaan. joee also mentioned that noone in the jeep helped them at all. if anything, the passengers who kept getting off just prolonged the ride to the clinic where the jeepney driver dropped them off and disappeared.

when joee realized that the clinic would not be able to do anything, sinakay sila nung clinic sa cab and when joee was pleading for a nurse to go with them to help her stop Tara's bleeding while in the cab, still noone helped.

according to joee, tara was still conscious and responding to joee while they were in a cab going to the hospital in marikina. when they got to the hospital, the doctors took over. that was the last time joee saw tara awake.

right now, tara's in the ICU of Medical City. the bullet is still lodged in her brain. right now, she's on life support. you can go visit her from 5pm to 7pm everyday. i think the doctors are waiting for her condition to stabilize lang. then tara's family has to decide na talaga whether or not they should let the doctors operate on Tara. if she undergoes surgery, it's a 50-50 chance of making it... so please.. let's keep praying... i think we all want a miracle. so let's pray for one.
