A 14-year-old made Duterte cry: "Humagulgol ako doon ng sandali"



In a speech in Davao City, President Rodrigo Duterte recalled how he wailed after a visit to a ward for cancer-stricken children.

Another instance when Duterte publictly shed tears was following his victory in the 2016 elections.
Duterte went to the graves of his parents after partial election results showed him leading. He broke into tears while asking his parents to help him rally the country.

This time, President Duterte was moved to tears after talking to a bald 14-year-old boy asked for a prosthetic leg.

Duterte may be tough when it comes to dealing with corruption and illegal drugs, but his heart easily melts when it comes to children.

"Nung dadaan na ako, hinawakan niya yung pantalon ko. Sabi niya, 'Mayor sa Monday, operahan na ako. Sabi ng doktor, puputulin daw yung paa ko. Tapos, at - maghingi sana ako ng pabor.' Sabi ko, 'Ano yun anak? Sani niya, 'Palitan mo ako ng... Bilihan mo.' - palitan,' Bisaya. Bisaya, ang palitan is you buy. 'Palitan mo ako ng paa," the president explained.

After promising to buy the boy a prosthetic leg, the president said he headed to a bathroom to cry.

"Dumeretso ako doon, sabi ko mag-ihi ako. Actually, I cried. Wala naman na mayayabang, pagkatapos ganun kaagad ng panyo. Para yung hangin, matutuyo, hindi mahalata. Eh, pag macho-macho eh. Pero talagang umiyak, humagulgol ako doon ng sandali. Buhay na to,' Duterte said.
