BY CARLA GOMEZ
The flight stewardess from Negros Occidental, who died in the Yemenia Airways Flight 626 crash in the Indian Ocean while en route to the Comoros Islands Tuesday, was a big fan of Michael Jackson and was grief-stricken when he died last week.
The plane that was flying from Yemen's capital Sanaa came down in bad weather with 153 on board. Only a 12-year-old girl survived.
The Negrense fatality, Camille Lou Libron, 26, single, of Calatrava town, had dreamed of meeting the King of Pop some day, her aunt, Teresita Oebanda, who teaches at the Calatrava Central School, told the DAILY STAR.
