That’s not a capsized boat in your picture. And the usage of the word ‘crew’ can be improved.
Thanks for reporting this. Nothing about this latest Iloilo Strait mishap on the Daily Guardian or the Panay News. Guimaras has been my home for over 10 years. I like to read all the news about Guimaras, good or bad.
