Messy airline sked delays airlifting of Aganon’s body

EVEN in death, the plane was still late.

Airline scheduling problems delayed the airlifting of the remains of the late city police director Col. Nelson Aganon to his hometown yesterday.

Aganon’s body was originally scheduled to be airlifted via Philippine Airlines at 10:15 am yesterday. It was then rescheduled at 9:20 pm.

On Thursday, Aganon’s body was brought to the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) headquarters for a wake attended by Mayor Oscar Moreno.

After paying his last respects to his police chief, Mayor Oscar Moreno handed Aganon’s widow Reena P400 thousand as city hall’s aid and a plaque as a posthumous award for Aganon.

The body was then brought to Camp Alagar yesterday morning.

Col. Reynante Reyes, officer-in-charge of the city police, said Aganon would be laid to rest in his hometown in Nueva Ecija.

Aganon died while in a hospital this week, 13 days after he met a motorcycle accident while training at Camp Evangelista in Barangay Patag, this city. (Joey Nacalaban)
