The Philippines’ first woman president, Corazon Aquino, passed away this morning at 3:18 am due to the cardio respiratory arrest. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in March 2008 and has been battling this disease for more than a year.

Her only son, Benigno Aquino III., made an announcement to the media waiting outside Makati Medical Center. All her 5 children were all beside her praying the rosary when she gasped her last breath. The former president was 76.

There will be a public viewing at La Salle Greenhills. Her body will be laid to rest at the Manila Memorial Park, beside her husband Benigno Aquino Jr.
