A tragic story has been trending worldwide about a beloved Filipino-Spanish actress who passed away on Saturday, November 4th. Isabel Granada, who was also a singer and athlete, died at only 41 years old after falling into a coma.
According to GMA, the coma came as a result of a brain aneurysm during a business trip in Qatar with her husband, Arnel Cowley. Apparently, those close to Granada were very hopeful that she would come out of the coma, so the news about her death was shatteringly heartbreaking.

Granada’s husband stated, “She has been a fantastic wife, mother and daughter. She always did her best in everything she did, whether it be in front of a camera or sports. I would also like to take this time to thank the Filipino community in Doha for giving their full support throughout this difficult time for myself and the family.”
