5 policemen, 5 others rescued from capsized boat off Surigao



FIVE policemen, three governor’s staff and two boatmen were rescued after their motorboat sank Friday morning off Surigao del Sur, police reports said on Saturday.

The group reports said the policemen and staffers of Governor Sol Matugas boarded the boat in General Luna town on their way to Dacu Island as advance party for an education caravan.

On their way to the island, a sudden storm surge and big waves hit the motorboat, sinking it.

A passing pumpboat and responding personnel from the General Luna Municipal Police Station on board a speedboat owned by the local government rescued the boat’s passengers and crew.
