A FAM­ILY out­ing turned tragic when a woman and her daugh­ter died af­ter they drowned in a beach re­sort at Barangay Mi­randa, Hini­garan, Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 29.

Jireh Paul Dayrit of the Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Pro­vin­cial Dis­as­ter Man­age­ment Pro­gram Di­vi­sion (PDMPD) iden­ti­fied the fa­tal­i­ties as Laizza Sa­bando, 30, and her daugh­ter Shine, 6, both res­i­dents of La Car­lota City.

Dayrit said Laizza who was re­port­edly un­der the in­flu­ence of in­tox­i­cat­ing liquor asked her daugh­ter to go swim­ming past 12 p.m. How­ever, af­ter a few min­utes, they were seen float­ing.

Res­cuers ar­rived and tried to re­vive them but they failed.

Dayrit said the vic­tims drowned when the waves went roughly due to the ef­fect of Typhoon Rosita.

Both were de­clared dead at a hospi­tal.
