A one-year-old infant has survived a near-fatal drowning accident in Barangay Kasanyangan last Thursday.

The victim was identified as Adelisa Sabdani, one- year-old and the daughter of Araisa Jamahani and Pula Sabdani.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that the infant was left to the care of her grandmother, 70-year-old Maimuna Jailani, after her parents went on a business trip to Basilan Province.

Minutes later, neighbors heard Maimuna shouting that her granddaughter fell into the sea.

Neighbors found the one-year-old child near a banca and proceeded to revive the victim.

After a few minutes, the child became conscious and is now with her parents.  (Remus Ong)
