“Just give me the body please.”

'Give Me My Daughter's Body!' This Mourning Father Asks For The Her Daughter's Body Who Died in The Attack At The Resorts World!

Those are the anguished words of Gil Yangco, the father of Hazel Yangco, one of the casualties in the Resorts World Manila attack.  

A lone gunman stormed the casino on Friday morning, torching the gaming tables and carpets after stealing more than Php100M worth of casino chips in the storage room. The resulting fire blinded and suffocated the panicking guests and hotel employees, leading to numerous reported deaths and injuries. According to the authorities, the dead bodies found in the second floor mainly died due to suffocation from the thick smoke. 

Ms. Yangco worked as a table supervisor in the casino. One of the hotel employees even saw Hazel running. After the said employee attempted to pick up the dropped phone, Hazel was already missing. 

After hearing of the attack, Gil immediately went to Resorts World Manila to rescue his daughter. Unable to gather information about his daughter, he resigned himself to the fact that Hazel might be one of the casualties. 

At around 3:30 PM on June 3, officials of Resorts World Manila released the names of those killed in the incident, which included Hazel.

In a press conference, the police identified the attacker as Jesse Carlos, a former employee of the Department of Finance. As requested by his family, Carlos was banned from all casinos due to his gambling addiction.

Gambling addiction is a disorder wherein you can’t control the impulse to gamble, despite negative consequences. Even if the odds are against you, a compulsive gambler will still play. Severe addiction happens when you are financially desperate. As an example, Carlos reportedly had gambling debts and money problems. 

A gambling addiction or problem is always associated with other behavior or mood disorders, e.g. depression, stress, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, substance abuse, bipolar disorder. 

Aside from these, signs that you have a gaming problem are as follows: feel the need to be secretive about gambling; have trouble controlling gambling habits; gamble even without sufficient money; and have family and friends express concern about your gambling.
