CAUSE OF NEGLIGENCE? | No foul play in pool death of PMA plebe
November 9, 2019 , 07:11 PM

NOVEMBER 9, 2019 – The Philippine Military Academy (PMA) on Saturday said there is no foul play in the death of a first year cadet, whose body was found in the academy’s swimming pool.

PMA spokesperson Capt. Cheryl Tindog issued the statement after the academy received the autopsy report conducted by the Baguio Police, which showed that Telan died of asphyxia by drowning.

“Lumabas na rin iyong parallel investigation nila and it was found out po na there was no foul play, namatay po siya due to asphyxia by drowning and kailangan na lang po natin malaman ngayon ‘yong mga adminsitrative cases para iyong pong mga dapat managot ay managot,” Tindog said.

The Baguio City PNP said Telan was unaccounted in his next subjects following his swimming class from 11:00AM to 12:00PM.

He was later found at the bottom of the academy’s 15-feet pool on Friday afternoon. School authorities rushed him to the Fort del Pilar Station Hospital but was declared dead on arrival by the attending physician.

The PMA said Telan was one of the weak swimmers of the academy, but the PNP is looking at the possible negligence of the academy’s swimming instructors while reviewing the CCTV footage before the incident.

“We believe negligence on the part of the instructors closely supervising. Hindi natin nakita na tinitingnan nila closely yung mga kadete. We will be recommending most probably criminal liability. We are looking into that filing of charges against instructor for negligence,” said Allen Rae Co, Police chief of PNP Baguio.

The death of Telan is the third case of a cadet who died since September. Cadet Fourth Class Darwin Dormitorio died from hazing while Cadet Second Class Cedrick Gadia passed away from esophageal cancer at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Hospital.

“PMA deeply grieves for this unfortunate loss of one of our sons. All necessary assistance will be extended to the bereaved family and loved ones of Cdt 4CL Telan,” the academy said in a statement. (Juno Buena/AAD)
