Fisherman goes missing off seawaters in Medellin

A FISHERMAN went missing in between Gibitngil and Kinatarcan Islands in Medellin town, Cebu as Tropical Depression “Basyang” batters Cebu as of 12 noon Tuesday.

The missing fisherman was identified as Demetrio Booc.

Rhaffy Luche of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office said Booc reportedly went fishing around 11 p.m. just as Basyang was looming around Cebu.
