A 63 year-old grandmother, Clarita Camo, died after rescuing her 1 year-old grandson who was going to be run over by a cargo truck in Quezon province just earlier.

According to witnesses, the infant grandson suddenly ran to the road where an oncoming cargo truck was fast approaching. But his grandmother Clarita Camo saw him and immediately ran to him and pushed him out of the way.

But it was too late for the 63 year-old Camo who was hit by the truck and sustained a major head injury. The two were rushed to the hospital, where the 1 year-old grandson received treatment for his minor injuries, but the grandmother was declared dead on arrival.

Meanwhile the truck driver, 54 year-old, Danilo Rocha, was apprehended by authorities and charges will be filed against him.
