Water contamination
probed: 2 die, 9 sick


Two residents of  Sitio Pagula-on, Barangay Carol-an, Kabankalan City, have died while nine others are ill, and an investigation on the possible contamination of their water source is underway, Mayor Isidro Zayco said last night.

The water source of the sitio may have been contaminated because the area above their water reservoir is grazing land for cattle, but this has to be verified, he said.

Dr. Isagani Ayala, Kabankalan Rural Health Unit chief, has been directed to go to the area today to investigate the cause of the deaths and hospitalization of the residents in the area, Zayco said.moremoremore
