Her name is Janica Nam Floresca, Hashtag Franco Hernandez’s girlfriend of almost one year. In fact, the couple was supposed to celebrate their first anniversary this New Year. But their seemingly blissful relationship tragically ended Saturday in Davao Oriental.

Franco and Janica, together with some friends including Hashtag Tom Doromal, were riding a motorized banca when big waves hit them. Franco and Janica were thrown overboard. Both were rescued but Franco was already unconscious. He was declared dead on arrival at a local clinic. He was 21 years old.

“Lord sana ako na lang sana bumitaw na lang din ako sana hindi na ako lumaban sana magkasama kami ngayon sana ako na lang sana ako na lang.” Janica wrote on Twitter.
