The victims were participan­ts in a conference organized by the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountant­s. Alex Pimentel, leader of the inspection team, said the students stayed at the hotel and were served breakfast on Monday before they checked out. He said they began complainin­g of stomachach­e as they were headed home. Nasugbu Mayor Antonio Barcelon said the local government learned of the incident only on Tuesday noon as the students were taken to different hospitals outside their town.
