Camille Lou Castillo Libron, 26 years old and single is the Pinay stewardess aboard the ill-fated Yemenia Airbus A310 that crashed into the Indian Ocean off the island nation of Comoros. The confirmation of the Filipina's identity was made by the Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia which has jurisdiction over Filipinos in Yemen.
Contrary to initial reports, the lone survivor among the 153 passengers of the crashed jet is a 13-year-old French national of Comorian descent. In a miraculous story of survival, Bahia Bakari was plucked out of the water while clinging on to plane debris by rescuers hours after the plane plunged into the Indian Ocean.
More on this story in this GMANews.tv article.
In her blog, Adventures of a Beauty Queen, Miss Joyce Ann Burton shows two pictures of Camille, one by herself and the other with her best friend Vesta. According to Joyce, Camille is a former student of hers at the Wings School for Flight Attendants.
I also found this blog post, Yemen Jet Crash, The Story About the Only Filipino on Board, by a close friend of Camille. Spicensash describes Camille as "the most enthusiastic and happiest person I know."
We join her family, relatives and friends in praying for a miracle in the life of young Camille Libron.
