LAOAG CITY , April 10 – Epilepsy sufferers should stay away from body of water and other danger zones. This piece of advice was too late for fish vendor Melvin Adriano of Mangaldan, Pangasinan. First, he and two buddies had a drinking spree below the Marcos bridge here after their fish delivery from Dagupan City.
Later, he dipped into the Padsan river to cool off. His buddies worried when he failed to come back. Cops theorized he probably drowned when his epilepsy occurred while swimming in the river.
