MANILA - A returning overseas Filipino worker (OFW) collapsed at the arrival area of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 on Tuesday morning.

Anna Erlyn Melinda Porras Bernabe, 33, arrived at NAIA-1 on board Emirates Airlines flight EK 336 from Dubai at around 6:50 a.m.

Bernabe, who was on a wheelchair, was brought by an attendant from Emirates Airlines to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) counter.

She spent almost 3 hours at the OWWA counter, and she was later seen sprawled on the floor unconscious.

Responding medical staff of the Manila International Airport Authority gave Bernabe oxygen and intravenous fluids, but she remained unresponsive.

She was then brought to the airport's medical clinic.

Bernabe was still unresponsive and under observation, as of writing.
