In a phone interview, Consolacion said Roxas with his cousin and son went near the Antipolo river in Barangay (village) Salitran 4 on Saturday afternoon to gather vegetables.

“He reportedly attempted to cross the river but was swept away by the strong current,” Consolacion said. He said it happened as Tropical Storm Domeng dumped heavy rains in the province.
