56 incidents reported during Holy Week

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police recorded at least 56 incidents during the Holy Week break, PNP spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo reported yesterday.

Fajardo said in an interview over dzBB that since the start of Holy Week monitoring on March 25 until 6 a.m. yesterday, the overall observance has been relatively peaceful, despite several Holy Week-related incidents.

“As of 6 a.m., we recorded 56 incidents, 34 of them were drowning incidents and 10 were vehicular accidents,” the police spokesperson reported.

Fajardo added that the spate of drowning incidents began on March 27.

These incidents, she said, primarily occurred at beaches, resorts and rivers, with two near-drowning incidents reported.

Fajardo highlighted the timely intervention of police personnel in rescuing some victims, while lamenting the loss of lives from incidents that occurred in private resorts, with three individuals still missing. She urges the public to exercise caution and responsibility to prevent further tragedies. — Michelle Zoleta, Ric Sapnu, Ramon Efren Lazaro, Jennifer Rendon
