Casaroro Falls - Halloween 2012 Tragedy (NO JOKE)

One of our visitors informed us about the tragedy in Casaroro Falls yesterday - November 1, 2012. He's a fireman, and he's colleagues were part of the rescue team.


They were three people (2 men and 1 woman) who work for a local Credit Corporation (DCCCO) in Dumaguete City decided to visit Casaroro Falls on Halloween at around 8:00 AM. The incident happened around 11:00 AM.The bodies were fetch around 2:00 PM.

Accordingly, the victims were identified as Darryl Lim, 22 years old, from Cavite City and Anthony Patacsil, 20, from Baguio City. 

Let me show you the pictures from Greg Morales facebook.
This is the rescue.
This is one of the victim.
The rescue is calling backup to fetch the dead bodies.

She's with the two men who died.


 I know these photos are gross. Forgive me, please. I am a travel blogger, and I want you guys to know that we have to be careful in any place we visit. These people were not from Valencia, Negros Oriental, where the beautiful Casaroro Falls is situated. 

Locals are always swimming in the waterfall, but they know exactly which part of the waterfall is too deep and where the part the current is too strong. There is no lifeguard, but tourists are always advise NOT TO SWIM. No lifeguard, because the entrance is free. Locals are the one maintaining the area. 

Thank you for dropping by guys. Again, I am so sorry. Thank you for Greg Morales for the photos. 



Just me, 
Phioxee

  9. This is really tragic. And to think that our slogan is More Fun in the Philippines. I think it's not enough to put signs there to say that it's dangerous. I mean, they are actually promoting the place for tourism and yet there aren't enough safety measures provided. It's like we're saying, hey look, Involuntary Suicide is More Fun in the Philippines.

    It's kind of morbid but thanks anyway for posting this. At least people should be aware of the dangers when local government is not providing safety measures for its people and tourists, and yet they have the guts to smile and lure people to places like this.

    This is an incident that could've been avoided, but the authorities were too negligent.

  25. I am one of the victim's sister. It's really so painful losing someone so young & full of dreams and plans for his future. He's our bunso. He told us he will go home this christmas. It is heartbreaking thinking that we will never be able to spend christmas with him anymore... They weren't swimming at the falls. They were just taking pictures. If there were warning signs in the area, the accident might not have happened!!!
