fire kills filipino american family in new jersey

This is a sad story out of New Jersey... In Union, four members of a Filipino immigrant family, the Aguas, were killed early Wednesday when a fire swept through their home: Blaze Kills Four in a Much-Loved Family in New Jersey. The fire killed Edgardo and Digna Aguas, their 13-year-old daughter Emily, and Digna's 86-year-old mother Flotilda Tullao. The Aguas' son, 21-year-old Edgar, was the fire's only survivor. He was pushed out of a first-floor window by his father and suffered minor injuries. I can't imagine the shock he must be going through. According to many, the Aguas' were friendly and well-liked, and their deaths have left a hole in the heart of the city's Filipino community.
