Dreams of a male graduating student in CEBU suddenly disappeared as he drowned in Kawasan Falls in Barangay Matotinao, Badian Cebu, Monday afternoon.
The student identified as Alrene Bersalote, 18 years old and a resident of Barangay Cubacub, Mandaue City, was a fourth year working student of Cebu Technological University (CTU) main campus taking up Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.
According to reports, Bersalote allegedly dived in Kawasan Falls when he drowned.
Bersalote sustained severe head injuries when he landed in a shallow portion of the water from the second level of the water falls.
He was however rushed to Badian provincial hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
According to reports, PO1 PO1 Rico Lirasan of the Badian police station said that the victim along with 15 other working students agreed to go to Kawasan Falls to hold a Christmas party.
The students reportedly arrived at around 9.am. And the supposedly happy celebration turned out tragic when around 4 p.m., a very unfortunate incident happened as Bersalote drowned as he dived.
Meanwhile, the relatives of the victim as per PO1 Lirasan already went to the town to bring his body back home in Mandaue City.
The incident is just a reminder for everyone to very extra careful to wherever place we should go.
