Men of the Police Station 10 based in Labuan led by Sr. Insp. Chester Natividad together with some barangay officials of Patalon rescued three fishermen whose fishing boat suffered engine trouble yesterday afternoon.

Natividad and his men with Patalon Barangay Chair Aripin Arsani and Hussin Bayani, tanod leader, successfully rescued Julito Pongcol y Espina, 25, Alexis Neri y Parantar, 26, and Christopher Alibo y Bayot, 28, all of Nabanga, Bohol.

The three fishermen told the police that they were navigating the sea off Sangbay Island when their fishing boat malfunctioned and ran out of fuel.

They said that big waves and strong sea current brought them to the sea near Patalon.

The rescued fishermen were brought to the Labuan Police Station while Natividad coordinated immediately with the CSWDO to take temporary custody of the three — Dan Toribio
