Eight persons including 4 small children and a pregnant woman were rescued by fishermen in Lunao, Gingoog City after 5 hours adrift at sea following the sinking of their small boat or banca by huge waves. The group was traveling from Tup-on in Medina town and was heading for Consuelo in Magsaysay town.
In a post from Gingoog Flash Report, the group was carrying TV set and DVD player and was heading home when their banca encountered huge waves while in transit across Gingoog Bay. All their belongings were soaked in water when rescued. Browse photos below by Kyla Olayvar.
