family seeking full details


The family of an Overseas Filipino Worker, Lauro Suan Alaton, 39, from Apo Island in Dauin, Negros Oriental, who reportedly died on board a cargo vessel somewhere in Korea recently, is seeking more information about his death.

Ronald Alaton of Apo Island said in an exclusive telephone interview with this reporter that their family was informed that his older brother, Lauro, married, died on board the cargo ship MV (Chang) Tai Hong I sometime between Saturday and Sunday.

It was not known whether the ship was on port call in North Korea or South Korea, he said, adding that Lauro had signed a contract this year with BB Shipping, a company based in Metro Manila, and had boarded the Tai Hong I in January.
