The body of a drowned fisherman was fished out of the sea off Purok 2, Barangay Sinunuc last Sunday afternoon.

Police identified the victim as Kennedy Taup y Aliman, of Abajada, Sinunuc. He was positively identified by his relatives, police said yesterday.

Initial investigation showed that the body of Taup was retrieved at around 4 p.m. and was taken to their residence.

However when the body was already in their house, relatives noticed that Taup still has pulse which prompted them to rush him to the hospital but he was later declared dead by the physicians.

It was learned that Taup went to fishing when he accidentally fell into the water. – Dan Toribio
