CAMP MARCELO A. ADDURU, TUGUEGARAO CITY – The Cagayan Valley police has warned parents and guardians to be extra careful after a student attending a Scout Junior-Senior Jamboree in Ballesteros town, Cagayan, drowned.

Cagayan Valley police director Chief Supt. Jose Mario Espino, said the death of 12-year-old Vince Lucina, a Grade 6 pupil of Solana Elementary School, should serve as warning to those planning to travel to tourist destinations this summer.

Espino earlier ordered the police to set up public assistance centers ahead of the influx of people in resorts and other tourist destinations in the region.

Lucina drowned last Sunday in the lagoon inside the Jamboree site.

The boy was rushed to the Ballesteros District Hospital where he was declared dead.
