RIP Isabel Granada

 RIP Isabel Granada

Singer actress Isabel Granada passes away at 41 Saturday night in Doha. She shot to fame as a child and teen star in the 1980s.

Geryk Genasky Aguas, Granada’s former husband who spoke from Qatar where Granada was confined for more than a week, confirmed the news in a report on dzMM Sunday morning, Manila time.

The actress died at Hamad General Hospital in Doha, where she was rushed after she collapsed at a fan meet-and-greet in the same city on October 25.

The condition that led to her collapse was described as a brain hemorrhage indicating aneurysm, which in turn affected her heart.

Aguas said Granada was declared brain-dead by doctors on October 27. She never woke up from her coma.

The remains of actress Isabel Granada will be brought back to the Philippines on Wednesday this week.

Granada's partner, Arnel Cowley, told GMA News that he will bring home the actress' remains from Qatar on Wednesday night.

Other close relatives of the actress who went to Qatar after she fell into a coma were scheduled to return to the country today.

Cowley said they were planning to have Granada's remains cremated.

He said the actress had told her while they were attending a friend's wake in Australia that she would like her remains to be cremated.

Cowley, however, said this would depend on the decision of his wife's mother.

He said Granada was declared dead at 6 p.m. in Qatar (11 p.m. Philippine time).

The official cause of death of the actress was brain hemorrhage due to aneurysm, he added.

Some of her movies include “Bakit Madalas ang Tibok ng Puso” (1986), “Shake Rattle and Roll 2” (1990), “Chickboys” (1994), “Ligaya ang Itawag Mo Sa Akin” (1997), and “Hubad sa Ilalim ng Buwan” (1999) among others.
