Army troops from the military’s Northern Luzon Command (NOLCOM) retrieved on Saturday the bodies of two teenagers who apparently drowned in Garlang River, San Ildefonso town in Bulacan.
Lt. Col. Isagani Nato, NOLCOM spokesman, identified yesterday the two drowning victims as Nathaniel Frias, 15, a local resident; and Erica Caycedo, 14, who was from Novaliches, Quezon City.
Nato said the drowning of the victims was called to their attention by one Roberto Valdisno of San Ildefonso Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Managrment Council (MDRRMC).
Investigation into their drowning was being handled by the local police.
