Statement of Christopher Lao

Before I post the Statement of Christopher Lao, lets do a quick summary about the incident that happened to Mr.Lao. The famous incident was reported and aired by GMA news showing the Nissan Exalta floating in the flood after he attempted to push through a flooded portion of the road, passersby then pushed the car away from the flood and thats when the GMA news reporter approached and interviewed him.

for the full story check out my earlier post the "Christopher Lao:The man that wasn't informed."

And here is the Statement of Christopher Lao.

Official Statement from Christopher Lao
4 August 2011

The past few days have been very disheartening for me and my family. As you know I have been a subject of a viral video that showed my helplessness during a trying moment. As it stands right now, I have several hate pages in Facebook and Twitter with hurtful and derogatory messages attacking my person. The reputation that I built the past years has been besmirched. A bad day has now turned into wounded feelings and sleepless nights for me and my family.

I have been silent the past few days as I want this to go away soon but not before saying sorry and thank you to people who matter.

I would like to apologize for my behavior that was seen on nationwide television and now on the internet. It was unfortunate that I was caught on camera immediately after an overwhelmingly stressful mishap.

I would like to again sincerely thank those who braved the flood to help a distraught stranger like me. Their selfless act reminded me of how dependable Filipinos are in times of crisis.

Lastly, I would like to thank my family, friends and all of those who showed empathy, consideration and support throughout these trying times. You have given me strength and courage to rise above and be a better person.

Sincerely yours,

Christopher Lao

Emotion is just reaction. Morality is not an issue there but how you deal with it is a totally different thing. I guess, sobra lang siyang kinain ng emotion niya that time. hay! Lesson learned? Wag padalos dalos lalo na when you're on national tv. hihihi! Let's just all forget about it. Nakaka-awa na siya at biktima na ng cyberbullying.
