The remains of Abigail Danao Leste were received by her children and the staff of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Overseas Workers Welfare Administration at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 on Friday, according to a report from ABS-CBN News.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said it will provide financial assistance to Leste’s children to support them through this difficult time.

Leste’s family immediately brought her remains back to their hometown in Tuguegarao, Cagayan where they will hold her wake.

The family of the victims appealed for justice and urged the government to file charges against the still-unnamed driver.

On Wednesday, Arlyn Nucos’ body arrived in Clark International Airport in Pampanga.
