Sherwin Boleto Death | Obituary – Sherwin Boleto age 40 body has been identified as the body drowned on Thursday, July 23, 2020, in the waters off Barangay Pilipog.
The body of Boleto was found at around 7:40 p.m., or around eight hours since he has last seen swimming.
According to Police Corporal Alvic Salimbot of the Cordova Police Station, the drowning incident may be an isolated case and may be considered an accident but it should also remind the public to always take precautionary measures.
“Kung maligo dagat pareho gihapon nga ang mga bata dapat gyud naay kauban nga gulang,” said Salimbot.
(If they swim, it should be just how kids should have an adult to watch over them.)
Salimbot said the victim was a resident of the area.
Initial investigation revealed that Salimbot went swimming at around 11 a.m. to collect shellfish. Later in the day, family members started looking for him as he had yet to return from swimming and it was about to get dark.
His body was later found floating near a mangrove area of the beach.
Salimbot said that they learned that Boleto usually had seizure attacks, which they suspect happened while he was swimming.
