ILOILO CITY, Jan. 19 – The body of a drowning victim was found over the weekend afloat somewhere in the stretch of Pan-ay River in Brgy. Agtambi, Dao, Capiz.

The Dao PNP said the body of Esmer Arroyo was already in the state of decomposition when found.

Report said that Arroyo accidentally fell into the river while on hook and line fishing last Friday in Brgy. Matagnop, Dao.

While he struggled to swim towards the river bank, he was reported to have been attacked by a sort of a muscle sprain or pulikat that rendered him helpless and drowned.

Effort made by volunteer rescuers to find his body was rendered futile not until his already bloated body afloat in the river when found by local residents in Brgy. Agtambi.

His cadaver, meanwhile, was brought to a local funeral parlor in the municipality for proper disposition and claims by his relatives. (PNA)
