THREE children died after a boat capsized off the coast of Iloilo province late Saturday afternoon because of rough seas, police reports said Monday. Reports said the sinking occurred at about 4 p.m. Saturday off the shores of Sitio Botlog, Brgy. Tambaliza, Concepcion, Iloilo. Regional Police commander, Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz Jr., said the boat capsized because of bad weather conditions, not because of Tropical Storm Gorio. The three fatalities were identified— Christopher Panikan, 1; Redan Rico Panikan, 2 and Justine Panikan, 4. Missing but later rescued were Aura Dominador, 60; Paulo Panikan, 10 and Rachel Panikan, 6.
