A happy family outing turned tragic after a 62-year- old grandfather drowned at Bolong Beach last Sunday.

Sangali Police Station chief Chief Inspector Chester Natividad identified the fatality as Gustabo Cruz y Solis, married and a resident of Tumaga.

Last Sunday, Cruz and his family went to the beach to have a family bonding party.

Prior to the drowning incident, the victim reportedly drunk alcoholic beverages then went on to swim.

Minutes later, Cruz was seen flailing his arms, thus prompting his relatives to rescue him.

Cruz was brought to the Mindanao Central Sanitarium but was declared dead while undergoing medication.

The body was taken to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination.  (Dan Toribio)
