Lola, 80, Falls from Kurong-kurong, Dies

SOLSONA, Ilocos Norte (Aug. 17) – Elderly Faustino Cudal broke in tears as he narrated the fatal accident of his wife Carmelita, 80, who fell from a kurong-kurong driven by a neighbor in Brgy Darasdas, this town.

“She was too old to ride on the motorized cart but she insisted it. At home, I don’t even allow her to do household chores,” he tearfully said in the dialect.
