P/Maj. Gen. Jose Ma. Ramos, who was one of several police officers seriously injured in a helicopter crash in Laguna last March, quietly passed away last week.
Ramos, who belonged to PMA Sinagtala Class ’86, was comatose ever since the unfortunate accident.
Former Philippine National Police chief Archie Gamboa, incidentally, was one of the lucky survivors of the chopper crash, together with P/Maj. Gen. Mariel Magaway and former PNP spokesman B/Gen. Bernard Banac.
The PNP chopper had just taken off when its tail snagged a high tension wire due to poor visibility caused by thick dust.
