A 14 year-old girl was declared dead-on-arrival at the Magsingal District Hospital after drowned in the beach in Pagsanaan Sur, Magsingal, Ilocos Sur.
Recently, the local folks and authorities also found her 13 year-old male companion.
According to Magsingal Fire Marshall Senior Fire Officer 2 Richard Garcia, their friends had immediately called for help after the two minors were seen drowning.
