IN CATICLAN
Plane overshoots
runway, 26 injured

BY NESTOR P. BURGOS JR.

ILOILO CITY – Twenty-six persons were injured when a landing Zest Air plane with passengers bound for Boracay Island undershot the runway of the Caticlan airport in Aklan Sunday morning.

Except for a passenger who suffered a fractured collar bone, the passengers and a few airport personnel suffered only minor injuries. But the incident forced the closure of the airport for more than five hours.

Insp. Lory Tarazona, police chief of Malay town, said passenger Rowena Versoza, 40, suffered broken bones and a cut on her head. She was taken to the Aklan Baptist Hospital in Caticlan along with the other injured.moremoremore

Sucked by a rainbow?

About 24 persons who were planting trees in Barangay Kumaliskis, Don Salvador Benedicto town, said they were sucked by a rainbow that drained them of their energy and caused one of their companions, Jenessa Refuela, 15, to collapse, DSB Mayor Laurence Marxlen de la Cruz said yesterday.

He said Refuela was given oxygen and dextrose at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City and, as of yesterday, was better but still under observation.moremoremore
