The woman who is a passionate campaigner against violence on women has herself become a victim.

Actress and beauty queen Pilar Pilapil was stabbed and beaten late Thursday night under yet unclear circumstances.

Pilapil, 60, was left for dead by two armed men in a grassy lot at the foot of a hill in Piedra Blanca Subdivision in Barangay (village) San Luis, Antipolo City, according to Senior Superintendent Manuel Prieto, Rizal police director.

The armed men drove off aboard the Kia vehicle of Pilapil, taking with them her companion identified as Rossel Rosalem, Prieto said.

The badly wounded Pilapil appeared at the gate of farm worker Marlon Viray at 11:20 on Thursday night, pleading for help.

“Tulungan niyo ako, tulungan niyo ako (Help me),” Viray, 27, quoted Pilapil as saying.

He told the Inquirer that Pilapil, barefoot and wearing black tights and a dress stained with blood, was shaking the wooden gate and telling him and his companions that her life was in danger.

“Her lips were broken. She had bruises on her face and she was bleeding,” Viray said, adding that they took her immediately to the Antipolo District Hospital. - PDI

'Pilapil played dead to survive'
By Non Alquitran (The Philippine Star) Updated April 18, 2011 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines -  The doctor of veteran actress Pilar Pilapil said she played dead to survive her ordeal at the hands of her assailants during a carjacking incident in Marikina City last Thursday.

Dr. Raymond Resurreccion of Medical City said Pilapil suffered multiple stab wounds, one of them life threatening.

Resurreccion told a press briefing yesterday at the Medical City in Pasig where Pilapil is confined, that the actress’s presence of mind – playing dead and seeking immediate medical help – managed to save the day for her.

He said the actress was stabbed in the neck, face, arms and the left armpit, hitting her lungs, which caused the vital organ to partially collapse.

Resurreccion stressed that Pilapil was coherent at the time she was rushed to the hospital.

The doctor said Pilapil is now in stable condition and could be discharged from the hospital anytime this week.

Chief Superintendent Samuel Pagdilao Jr., director of the police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) and head of Task Force Pilar, said investigators still have no update on the whereabouts of Pilapil’s niece Rosel Jakosalem Penas and the gold Kia Sedan car that were both taken by the two male suspects believed to be carjackers.

At the time of the incident Penas was driving the vehicle with Pilapil as her passenger and they were on their way to meet somebody at the Riverbanks in Marikina City.

Pilapil’s brother Leo, a kagawad of Barangay Poblacion in Liloan, Cebu, told reporters that the car was moving slowly on the way to the Riverbanks when the attackers suddenly opened the unlocked doors of the car and barged into the back seat of the vehicle.

Police investigators erroneously made an initial report that the victims’ car was parked at the Riverbanks Center in Marikina.

Ching Maipid, advertising and public relations manager of Riverbanks Center, vehemently denied that the victims’ Kia car was parked at the Riverbanks Center based on initial news reports.

Maipid said a report from the center’s security unit would prove that there was no altercation at the Riverbanks last April 14.
