Bocaue Mayor Joni Villanueva announced a shrine will be constructed to remember the victms of the 1993 Pagoda tragedy.
The politiko said this in a Facebook post on Monday, July 2.
“Dalawampu’t limang taon na po ang lumipas subalit sariwa pa rin sa ating ala-ala ang mga kamag-anak, kaibigan, kaklase, kapit-bahay at ka-barangay na nakasama sa trahedya ng lumubog na pagoda. Isang bantayog ang itatayo natin sa pag-alaala sa kanila,” said Villanueva.
In 1993, the floating pagoda used during the Bocaue River Festival sank, claiming the lives of some 200 devotees.
