DOT–Boracay OIC Tim Ticar, saddened by the drowning incidents of tourists in Boracay yesterday

DOT-Boracay Officer in Charge Tim Ticar feels sorry about yesterday’s incident where tourists in Boracay have drowned.

The island was shuddered by separate tragedies when two HRM students of Arellano University, and another tourist, who intended to save them, had died due to drowning.

And in an isolated case, two females and a two-year-old Taiwanese national also died after the motorboat that they were on had overturned yesterday afternoon.

In line with this, Ticar said that it would be appropriate for the authorities to find out the problems and flaws and or weaknesses that had caused these tragedies.

He suggested that this matter, for instance, be discussed among the members of the Boracay Action Group and other agencies on the island.

Ticar added that these kinds of situation have “no room for alibis,” rather cooperation is needed for a better solution.

Meanwhile, the DOT-Boracay pointed out that it doesn’t matter whether the victims may be a ‘pinoy’ or foreign tourist, because they are still going to help them.
