MANILA, Philippines – Authorities are still looking for Alvin Bantugan, a crew of F/B Gemver 1, more than a week after the onset of Typhoon Ursula in Occidental Mindoro.
According to his wife Hazel, he was looking after their motor banca when large waves came ashore and washed him away along with the sea vessel.
“Kalmang kalma iyon, tapos biglang dalawang bugso (The sea was calm that day. Suddenly, the waves went wild),” she said.
“Doon po siya naanod, sa unahan daw po siya ng bangkang GemVer 1. Bigla na lang po iyong tumaob. Bukod tangi po siyang hindi nakikita sa mga tauhan, (That’s when he was washed away. The motor banca turned upside down over him. He was the only one left missing),” she added.
Aside from his missing husband, Hazel is also worried because no one would help her repair the damages caused by the typhoon to their house.
“Sana po matulungan ni Mayor kami na makita ang aking asawa, (I pray that our Mayor can help us search for my husband),” she asked.
“At matulungan niya ako dahil sira pa rin po ang aking bahay (I also ask for help in the repair my house,)” she added.
F/B Gemver 1 was the same sea vessel involved in the controversial maritime incident with a Chinese vessel in West Philippine Sea last year.
It took five months to repair the vessel’s damage before it was able to venture out again at sea. – MNP (with reports from Von San Pedro)
