2 die in Subic Bay allegedly due to heat stroke
Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman and Administrator Wilma T. Eisma urged residents and visitors in the freeport zone to take extra precaution while enjoying the summer following the death of two people allegedly due to heat stroke.
Eisma cited reports that a Hanjin shipyard worker died Saturday, April 28, after fainting while conducting waste segregation at the company’s scrap area.
Autopsy report showed that John Mark Acdel, 24, suffered cardio respiratory arrest due to heat stroke.
Meanwhile, the body of Reanosa Tolentino Pabayan, a 35, from Pastolan Village, wife of an Ayta, was found at the Malawaan River also on Saturday.
According to the family, Pabayan, who was an epileptic went fishing on midday.
Medical personnel were still looking as to the cause of her death.
Eisma said while the people enjoy swimming in beaches, hiking and biking or camping in Subic forests, “let us not forget to do the simple things, like drinking enough water to keep ourselves hydrated.”
She asked the Public Health and Safety Department (PHSD) of the SBMA to do an active information campaign on how to avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Citing the weather bureau, she said the average temperature in Subic Bay is 34-37 degrees centigrade during summer.
“And it can even go higher this year,” Eisma said.
