MANILA – It must have been a bad, deadly joke.
Actress Kim Chiu says she has no known enemies who would ambush her in broad day light but that was exactly the actress experienced Wednesday morning.
Still shaking from what she just experienced in real life drama, Kim Chiu said the incident could be that of a mistaken identity after motorcycle-riding gunmen suddenly fired at her vehicle Wednesday morning in Quezon City.
The Cebuana actress said she heard at least eight gun shots after she dropped for cover from the window of her service van.
Hours after the incident Kim Chiu posted on her Instagram claiming that “she is safe along with her personal assistant and driver.”
It was gathered that the gunmen opened fire at the van carrying Kim along Katipunan Ave. corner C.P. Garcia Ave. in Quezon City at around 6:15 a.m.
The unidentified suspects immediately fled after the shooting.
“I don’t have an idea (of) what really happened. Mistaken identity, I guess? Napagtripan? This is a bad joke,” Kim wrote on Instagram adding her instinct to lie down instantly and move away from the vehicle’s window saved her from harm.
“Wala naman akong kaaway or ka atraso. Kung sino man ang gumawa nito Diyos na ang bahala sa inyo dalawa,” the 29-year-old ABS-CBN star said.
And as scheduled, Kim Chiu went on to attend to her 8 a.m. taping at the network.
The full text of her Instagram post reads:
“A lot of you have been texting and calling. can’t answer right now. Thank you for checking on me. Means a lot. Yes I am safe po. I’m ok and my P.A. And my driver as well. Papa Jesus protected us. I dont have an idea what really happened, mistaken identity? I guess?? Napag tripan?.. This is a bad joke. 6am on my way to taping, I was asleep inside my car then I heard several gun shots, 8 to be exact. I was shocked and ask my driver what happened, then I saw this bullet on the windshield where my head was laying “buti nakahiga ako.” Pano kung tinuloy ko magbasa ng script?… I was so scared, I dont know what to feel right now. Wala naman akong kaaway or ka atraso. Why me?. Kung sino man ang gumawa nito Diyos na ang bahala sa inyo dalawa at the end of the day inisip ko nalang walang nasaktan sa amin. God protected us. Salamat po.” (iamigo/sovereignph.com)
