A 23-year-old man died of blood loss due to a knife wound he sustained on the knee in a freak accident at Sitio Tala, Boalan the other day.

The fatality was identified as Jobert Francisco Guevarra.

A police report disclosed that Guevarra was walking along with friends and he was playing with a knife which accidentally fell from his hands and struck his right knee around 11 p.m.

Police said that Guevarra’s companions carried him to the highway in Boalan where they took a ride for the hospital.

However, because of the distance they walked, Guevarra suffered from loss of blood before they reached the hospital.

Attending physicians declared him dead due to hemorrhage.

Police were checking the veracity of the companions’ allegation. – Dan Toribio Jr.
