The cause of death of the young and sporty Andrelyn is still a mystery

There will be a final viewing of the remains of Andrelyn P. Onera, the young Filipina domestic worker who was found floating in a pool in Laguna City, Lam Tin, on Sept. 20, and declared dead at United Christian Hospital three days later.

The public viewing will start at 2pm in the mortuary of United Christian, and will last for 45 minutes. After a final blessing her body will be taken away for cremation, in accordance with her family’s wishes.


Her younger sister, Jenny Mae Bandillon, said in a phone message that their aunt who is based in Hong Kong will do a livestreaming of the final rites for their family who are all unable to leave the Philippines because of the pandemic.

After Onera’s casket is taken to the crematorium there will be short program where her family will be asked to deliver messages.

Merly Bunda, a townmate of Onera, said the family opted for cremation because of the difficulty of transporting the remains of the deceased to her hometown of Dingle in Iloilo because of travel restrictions within the Philippines.

An autopsy was carried out on Onera’s remains as doctors seemed unable to diagnose the cause of her untimely death.

The 28-year-old Onera, a single mother to a 12-year-old boy, was known to be sporty and healthy, who often spent her days off hiking or swimming in the open sea.

Bandillon said her sister had no known ailment, and was a fun-loving and dutiful mother and daughter, who sent her younger siblings to school, and provided for their family.

Doctors at United Christian had earlier ruled out drowning as the cause of death, or concussion as a result of having slipped on the floor in the swimming pool area.

The doctor reportedly said Onera’s body just stopped beating while she was in the water, but the exact cause of this was unknown.

On the day she was found lifeless in the pool, Onera reportedly spent the morning resting inside her room, before chatting with her son and mother over lunch. At around 3pm, she borrowed the access pass to the estate’s clubhouse from her employer, saying she wanted to go swimming.

About 30 minutes later, the estate’s lifeguard accompanied by police officers, knocked on the employer’s door to inform her that Onera had been fished out unconscious from the swimming pool and taken to hospital. She never regained consciousness.
