A CHINESE national reportedly drowned on Friday afternoon while swimming on the pristine waters of Borocay Island, a popular tourist destination spot in Aklan.
Reports reaching the PNP’s central operations center in Camp Crame identified the Chinese national as Zhang Wei, 28.
The reports said Zhang went out snorkeling at around 1:40 pm in Sitio Tambisaan in Brgy. Manoc Manoc in Boracay Island, but failed to surface.
Zhang was then rushed by islanders to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, but was declared dead on arrival by attending physician. Anthony Vargas
