The three pupils of the Linomot Elementary School in this town decided to swim at the river, but a fourth boy in their group, Ron-ron Suguitan, decided not to and stayed at the banks.

Suguitan had run for help when the three boys were pulled by strong currents, said his aunt, Esther Daria.  SFM/rga
