Search operation continues to find body of drowned man in Abra River


Abra, Philippines – The search for the man believed to have drowned in the Abra River stretched into a second day on Tuesday, December 05, 2023.


The 32-year-old Joseph Borreta, married, went out for a supposed fishing trip with his brother and father, Jovencio Borreta, on Monday. They were to cross the river along Quillat, Langiden to get to the fishing area.


Jovencio crossed the river first, while the younger Borreta swam his way towards him. Unfortunately, Joseph was not able to make it to the other side.

When Jovencio heard his son asking for help, he tried to save him but it was too late, Joseph had been swept away.


He immediately called for his fellow fishermen and authorities for help who are still searching for his son’s body as of this writing.


Jovencio said his son was a swimmer but he might have been exhausted, causing him to drown.


The event serves as a warning that drowning is not something you can survive just because you can swim.
