The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), said that a 27-year-old man from Coron, Palawan, earlier said to be missing after he fell into the sea when his jetski toppled due to strong current as a result of the effects of the Southwest Monsoon enhanced by Tropical Storm “Domeng”, has been found dead.
Undersecretary Ricardo B. Jalad, NDRRMC Executive Director and concurrent Administrator of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), identified the victim as Algemon Dalisam Nuñez, a resident of Brgy. Corong-Corong, El Nido, Palawan, and a staff of Orange Pearl Resort.
He said at about 7:40 p.m. Friday, June 8, 2018, an African national saw a body lying at the shore in Brgy. Corong-Corong, El Nido Palawan.
This was immediately reported to the staff of Buko Beach (nearest resort), who immediately informed the El Nido Municipal Police Station.
The body was later positively identified by other staffers of Orange Pearl Resort and the family of the deceased as that of Nuñez who died due to drowning.
