Here a brief summary: Aizza Balbin, a nurse from Bohol, went missing when their raft capsized in one of the turbulent waters of the Cagayan River near one big boulder. Her companions, the Raft instructor, and guide were able to swim to safety yet she was not able to do so. Search-and-Rescue operations were held by the rafting company and the LGU but due to weather conditions they were not able to locate her ahead.
Awhile ago, I read that she was found, unfortunately dead already, just beneath the big boulder near where they capsized. She still had her lifevest yet she got stuck in the deep portion of the boulder due to the current. My prayers are with her and her family.
|That moment when I thought I was going down|
yet I held on and someone held me too
As someone who travels a lot I admit I suddenly felt scared having those thoughts in my mind but I guess this is human nature: we get courageous on some things and get scared on the other.
One thing is for sure: I won't be stopped travelling either with someone or on my own. I should start thinking about safety too. Life is one big adveture that I couldn't stop enjoying after all.
