A fisherman died after his foot was severed during an accident in Tumalutab, Sacol Island last Sunday.

The victim was identified as Danny Sanchez y Reñedo, 26 years old, married and a resident of Tumalutab.

The victim’s wife, 23-year-old Anjaneth, told police that Danny died while he and other fishermen were fixing a rope in their fishing boat.

The rope accidentally got entangled with Danny’s foot, causing it to be severed.

The victim died due to loss of blood while he was being taken to a hospital.

The cadaver was brought to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination.  (Dan Toribio)
