NAGUILIAN, Isabela—A 12-year-old boy drowned Wednesday while swimming at a small dam in Barangay Roxas here, police said.


The boy was seen last playing with his friends near the place until he took a dip in the mini-dam that is about 5-foot deep, according to Major Merwin Villanueva, Naguilian police chief.

The impounding dam is being used to stock water for farmers during the dry months.


Rescuers brought the boy to a hospital, but he was declared dead on arrival.
