A 17 year-old teenager drowned in Anuling River in Pamucutan last Tuesday afternoon.

Police identified the victim as Ruben Abao alias Bang-Beng, single of Sinubong.

Initial police investigation showed that Abao along with his friends Vicent Tumban y Narredo, 28, single and John Loyd Inut y Aurelio, 14, all of Sinubong , went to Anuling River particularly at the Hermosa Falls for swimming around 1:30 p.m.

While swimming, they failed to notice the coming of the flash flood brought about by heavy downpour in the mountains.

Tumban and Inut were almost taken by the strong water current but they were still able  to swim to the river bank but unfortunately Abao  did not.

The body of Abao was retrieved few hours after the incident by authorities and concerned residents living near the river. – Dan Toribio
