MANILA – Policemen are now searching for the “medic” who checked on the hazing victim, Guillo Servando’s condition after his alleged initiation with other members of the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity.

Servando, died suffering from physical injuries which he allegedly acquired from the hazing held in a house in Makati, last Saturday.

A source quoted in a Philippine Star report said that there was a medic, who was also a Tau Gamma Phi member, tasked to ensure that Servando and three other aspiring members would be “physically okay” after the initiation rites.

The source added in the same report that the media was asked to check on the victims because Servando was no longer moving.

He said that the medic “suddenly disappeared” upon seeing that there was a problem with Servando.

“When he saw that Servando had a problem, he suddenly disappeared,” the source said in Filipino.

“He didn’t come back. We want to know why he suddenly left instead of taking the boy to the hospital,” he added.

Servando who was still alive when he was brought to the condo unit of one of the victims, died several hours later.

The police are now searching for the medic and conducting a deeper probe on the incident.
