A fifth pilgrim named Kiram Macapalao Rasuman, 62 year-old male, from Lumba Bayabao, Lanao del Sur, died inside his tent in Mina today (Monday Manila time)

He was a part of Shiekh Abdul Radid Said, and was referred to the NCMF Medical Team led by Dr. Abdulnasser Masorong Jr, due to loss of consciousness. He was a known hypertensive with Coronary Artery Disease, on maintenance medications with good compliance.

When Dr. Masorong, Dr Almarie Pandao-Mangondato with Nurses Rayhana Sharief Mangandong and Mojib Alabao saw the patient, he was unresponsive with absent vital signs. Initial cardiopulmonary rescusitation was done before the patient was rushed to the nearest Mina Clinic. As per Ministry of Hajj protocol, rescusitation was continued for 40 minutes, but the patient was not revived. Cause of death was probably cardiopulmonary arrest secondary to massive myocardial infarction (heart attack).

The NCMF Medical Team and Dr. Masorong are currently waiting for the representative from maktab 94 for the processing of documents.

The NCMF and Secretary Saidamen B. Pangarungan send our deepest condolences to his family. Inna lillahi wainailayhi rajioon.
