A 2-year-old girl drowned in a river in Gasang, Latuan last Tuesday afternoon.

The victim was identified as Desire Shane Francisco y De Leon.

Police said that at around 2 p.m. the girl left their home without the knowledge of her parents with the intention to go to her grandmother’s house located near the river.

The girl, however, did not reach her destination.

It was believed that she waded through the river and drowned.

The girl’s mother went after her daughter but was horrified to see the latter’s body floating in the river.

She tried to administer first aid and rushed her daughter to the hospital but the latter was declared dead on arrival. (Dan Toribio)
