  Avansenia and his brother, Ivar, 35, went fishing Tuesday night, but their boat capsized when it got entangled in a fishing line.

Ivar survived when he managed to cling to the capsized boat and was rescued by a passing fishing boat. Isagani fell into the water and was missing for three days before his body was found.

 The body was brought to the Sola Garcia Funeral Services, Benjamin added.*
