Miss Earth 2008 Karla Paula Henry was stabbed outside her Mandaluyong condominium on Thursday, August 11.

A drunk tenant stabbed the 25-year-old beauty queen from Cebu at the parking lot of the California Garden Square condominium in Mandaluyong City, ABS-CBN's "TV Patrol" reported later Thursday.

Friends rushed Karla to a nearby Mandaluyong hospital before transferring her to St. Luke's Global City in Taguig City.

According to the "TV Patrol" report, a certain Jerome Quibuyen, 29, stabbed Karla in the back as she was on her way to the condominium elevator after she arrived at the parking lot at 6 a.m. Thursday.

Karla is now out of danger and doctors are observing her condition. She is undergoing tests for possible internal bleeding, the report further said.

“We should remind everyone to be extra careful, because people can just attack you, even in broad daylight,” advised the source, Karla’s friend, who wished not to be named.

Henry,a Fil-Canadian, won the eighth edition of the Miss Earth Pageant at the Clark Expo in Angeles, Pampanga in 2008. She was the first candidate from the host country to win the title.
