The boat's pilot, identified as Jerome Pervera, sustained injuries in his face, leg and back from the said explosion. He is expected to be released from the hospital Sunday.

Another unidentified guide was also hurt, according to the actor's chief of staff Michelle Juan.

Muhlach and his family were not on the boat at the time of the explosion.

The blast occurred past 6 a.m. in the vicinity of Gota Village Resort in the municipality of Caramoan.

Initial findings say the boat's engine and gas tank ignited, causing it to explode. Investigations are still ongoing, as of posting.

According to Muhlach's camp, gubernatorial candidate Miguel "Migz" Villafuerte used the same speedboat to make rounds in Caramoan on Friday.


Interior and Local Government chief Mar Roxas swears in Aga Muhlach as he joins the Liberal Party. The actor will be running as representative for CamSur's 4th District.

Muhlach, a former Kapamilya actor, is running for a congressional seat representing the fourth district of Camarines Sur in the May polls, challenging Wimpy Fuentebella of the political clan that has ruled the province since 1907. The Fuentebellas are among the oldest political dynasties in the country.

Muhlach and his wife Charlene have been secured in an undisclosed location where they are being given updates on the blast.

The explosion happened as the campaign period for local bets -- which is expected to be politically charged -- officially kicked off Friday, March 29. The Comelec however disallowed campaigning on Good Friday.--Source: ABS-CBN News/Rappler
