Five (5) siblings from Brgy. Doña Anecita, Pambujan Northern Samar, simultaneously drowned at a river, Monday afternoon.

The victims were identified as Janella Suansing, 10-anyos, John Cedric Suansing, 7, Johnprix Suansing, 5, John Jossel Galliardo, 3, at John Felix Galliardo, 2.

According to their mother, the kids asked permission to go swimming at the river nearby but she refused. Her children, however, sneaked and insisted to go.  It was lunch time when a fisherman saw their floating bodies, unconscious.

The siblings were immediately rushed to the St. Scholastica’s Hospital but they were declared dead on arrival.
