Bangka lumubog; 70 ligtas
AABOT sa 70 katao ang nailigtas makaraang lumubog ang bangkang de motor sa karagatan ng Dinagat Island, kahapon.
Ani Joefrey Monta, deputy commander ng Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) sa Surigao del Norte station, na-rescue lahat ang mga pasahero at crew.
“All of the 62 passengers and eight crew of the motorbanca named Gencyryll 2 were successfully rescued and we don’t have any report of any injury,” sabi niya.
Nagsimulang maglayag ang bangka sa Pantalan Uno alas-12 ng tanghali.
“Around 1:30 pm, our Coast Guard sub-station in Roxas, Basilisa town got a report from a barangay council member that a boat was sinking off the coast of one of the town’s coastal villages. We immediately deployed our speedboat towards the area,” sabi ni Monta.
Tumulong ang mga maliliit bangkang pangisda mula sa Cataman para mailigtas ang mga pasahero at crew, ayon pa kay Monta.
