BOYS SUFFER ELECTRIC SHOCK
THREE teenagers aged 14 and 15 suffered burns after they climbed an electric post in barangay Daanglungsod, Toledo City on.
SP01 Jerson Lebumfacil, desk officer of the Toledo City Police Station said, based on the investigation, the three tried to cut off the live electrical wire of the Cebu Electric Cooperative (CEBECO) post in sitio Larap around 7 p.m. Thursday.
Police said the three boys were helping each other in climbing up at an electric post to cut off the wires.
As the boys were cutting the wires, electricity ran through their bodies because of electrical short-circuit, police said.
A father of one of the boys said he was inside his house when he heard his son shouting for help.
When he checked the area, Eduardo said, the boys were already on the ground with burns in their bodies.
The three boys were treated at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu City./CORRESPONDENT JHUNNEX NAPALLACAN

A 62-YEAR-OLD man was stabbed dead by his neighbor in barangay Monserat, Pilar town in Camotes Island, Cebu.

Sondo suffered stab wounds in the chest and back. He died before reaching the hospital.

Insp. Bernabe Coyoca, chief of Pilar police, said Sondo was drinking with friends about 100 meters from his home when Mascariola arrived and stabbed the victim with a kitchen knife.
