A farmer was electrocuted while fishing at a creek in Barangay Sinuyak, Katipunan Municipality, Zamboanga del Norte last Sunday.

PO3 Noel Engkot, Police Investigator, identified the victim as Raymund Cambic y Dimasuhid, 23, single and a resident of Miatan, Katipunan Municipality.

Initial investigation disclosed that Caimbic used a fishing device made up of wire which he connected to an electrical outlet from the house of a certain Uldarico Moreno y Gayawon.

Hours later, the victim was found unconscious by his own brother, Ruel Caimbic.

Ruel pulled his brother out of the creek and tried to revive the latter but his actions were futile, said Engkot.

The victim sustained burns in his right hand and left chest, possibly caused by the strong electrical current which passed through his entire body as he held the live wire of his improvised fishing device.

The victim’s body was brought  to the family home.  (Ely Dumaboc)
