2-year-old drowns
A 2-year-old boy playing in the rain drowned in a canal Wednesday afternoon in New Binancaan, Barangay Daga, Cadiz City in Negros Occidental.

James Semania was rushed to the Cadiz Emergency Clinic but was declared dead on arrival, Police Officer 2 Robert Castro, duty patrol team leader of the Cadiz Police, said yesterday.

Investigation showed that Semania and his 7-year-old companion were playing in the heavy rain that afternoon when he went near the canal and was carried away by strong flood water current, Castro said.

Semania’s mother, whose name was not disclosed, was playing mahjong when the incident happened, Castro said.*SGG
