According to Samonte, he first thought that the driver wasn’t really old but just looked so in the photo; thus, he was surprised to discover that she was, indeed, old. She admitted that she’s 63 years old but couldn’t retire because she still has to support her sons and does not have savings for retirement; one of her sons works in maintenance department at the Central Bank while the other is jobless.
