Fallen 44 story on 'MMK' stars Coco Martin, Angel Locsin (video)

Coco Martin will play the role of a SAF trooper in the Fallen 44 story which will be featured in a special "Maalaala Mo Kaya" (MMK) episode.

Reports said the Kapamilya actor will give life to the story of Police Senior Inspector Gary Erana of the elite Special Action Force, who was among those killed in a bloody encounter with members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) in Barangay Tukanalipao in Mamasapano, Maguindanao in January.

Angel Locsin will be playing the role of Coco’s fiancee, lawyer Suzette Tucay who hails from Lamitan City, Basilan.

The two got engaged in 2013. Erana sent Tucay to school in New Zealand to study a business course while waiting for their supposed wedding next year.

They were able to exchange text messages while the SAF official and his troop were on their way to Mamasapano. Several hours before he was killed, Erana told his fiancee that he loves her so much and that they shall see each other soon.
