Man jumps off roro vessel, dies

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

A resident of Iloilo yesterday jumped to his death off a Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) vessel at the territorial waters of Brgy. 10 in Bacolod City, an official of the Philippine Coast Guard said.

Commander Joe Luviz Mercurio, newly-designated chief of the Philippine Coast Guard-Negros Occidental station, disclosed that the victim he identified as Joel Calubia, 35, of San Dionesio, Iloilo, was declared by dead by emergency responders of Bacolod City, after his body was retrieved and brought ashore by Coast Guard rescuers.

Mercurio said that Calubia had been suffering a nervous breakdown, based on the statements of his relative identified as Rodrigo Dichoso, who accompanied him in the trip.

He added that the Roro vessel was already about one nautical mile from the shoreline of Bacolod City, and on its way to Iloilo, when Calubia jumped into the sea.*
