 Three Filipinos who were supposed to go to United Arab Emirates for vacation  died in a car accident in Al Batha in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia last week.
Jose Aninon Tiongco,his son Jaj Landez Taguding Tiongco (10 years old) and cousin Elsa Buctuan Mijares died on the spot when their car crashed into another car last Friday. Jose's wife survived the accident.
Dennis Cabangahan, Jose's brother-in-law, told GMA News that they were supposed to meet each other in Al Batha before going to Abu Dhabi in the UAE to spend the long break for the Eid'l Adha holidays.
Cabangahan said they were exchanging text messages with the victims before the accident happened.
"Sa huling text message niya sa akin ay mga around 43 minutes daw at mararating na nila Jose ang lugar na aming magiging tagpuan pero lumagpas na ang isang oras ay wala pa rin sila," he said.
He said they sought police assistance after waiting in their meeting place for more than hour without receiving any message from the elder Tiongco.
Philippine Consul General Imelda Panolong has already been informed of the incident. She said preparations are ongoing for the repatriation the remains of the victims to the Philippines.
