“So many people helped me get through this I am blessed to be surrounded with these kind of people they dont have to do this ang dami na nila pinoroblema but still they insisted to help me,” she said. 

“Puno ng pasasalamat ang puso ko, I’m just happy that I am here posting another IG post and thanking HIM for this Precious life! Tuloy ang buhay,” Kim ended.

The actress had earlier said that she believes the incident was a case of mistaken identity.

Brigadier General Ronnie Montejo, chief of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) said probers found at least four vehicles that were of the same model and color as Kim’s van. 

“There were six to eight vehicles that look the same, but those of the same model and color, were three to four,” he said. 

The police chief added that they already have two persons of interest caught in a closed-circuit television footage.
