Luck is still on the side of our national basketball team as they barely escaped the bombing incident in Istanbul, Turkey.

Gilas Pilipinas had just left the city's Ataturk Airport a few hours before suicide bombers opened fire and blew themselves up, which resulted in 36 deaths and over a hundred people injured.

The players, who were coming off a victory against Asian rival China, couldn't help but express their relief after realizing how lucky they were to leave their stopover point early


Head coach Tab Baldwin also chimed in but at the same time was anxious for his friends in Turkey.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that no Filipinos were hurt during the tragic incident that is being linked to international terror group ISIS, GMA News reports.
