A construction worker was rescued by concerned citizens after being mauled and thrown to the river by his own co-worker in Barangay Tugbungan last Thursday.

The victim was identified as Bendito Otto y Asanun, 40, married, a native of Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte.

He sustained injuries in the body and was taken to the hospital.

The suspect was identified as Mario Jimenez y Aravijo, 35, of Candido Drive, Talon-Talon.

The report said that Otto and Jimenez figured in a heated argument while they were inside their barracks near the construction site at around 11 a.m.

Jimenez then attacked Otto by mauling him.

Otto fell in the river and was rescued by concerned neighbors more than an hour later.

The victim was confined while police held the suspect for investigation.  (Dan Toribio)
