According to saw Cristine Reyes, it was her two brothers who first reached their house in Provident Village, Marikina and tried to rescue her family.
It was in the speedboat borrowed from a friend by actor Richard Gutierrez, however, that Cristine rode on the way out of her house. But along the way, even the speedboat could not handle the flood waters and both Cristine and Richard were stranded and needed to be rescued. It was nevertheless a gallant effort on the part of actor Richard Gutierrez.
More on the rescue of Cristine Reyes and her family in this 24 Oras report by Nelson Canlas and in a Showbiz Central report by John Lapus.
