Princess suffered an injury in her spinal cord and was intubated because her lungs were dysfunctional from the affected T3 in her spine. A tube was inserted in her lungs to help it expand.

Steven suffered a liver and vascular injury along with a fracture in his limbs. He is in a critical condition due to massive blood loss.

Both victims were students of Ateneo de Davao University which was just across the night market.

 "They texted me that they were enjoying the massage as Steven had a fever. They said, 'Mom, we are okay.' But I was shocked when their next message was 'Mom a bomb exploded.'" said Stella, their mother.

Upon hearing about the incident, the victims’ parents went straight to Davao from Cotabato. MJM
