A man was found dead at sea near Bacolod City’s BREDCO Port on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 19.
The body of the 45-year-old man, whose name the police withheld on the request of his family, was spotted floating in the water by the port security guard, Capt. Glenn Montaño, Police Station 2 chief, said Monday.
The guard sought the help of P01 Mark Bantillo of the Philippine Coast Guard who tried to revive the victim but he no longer had a pulse, the police said.
The police are still investigating the cause of the victim’s death to determine if he accidentally fell off a vessel or if there was foul play as there were no witnesses.*
