Body of drowned Apo climber retrieved

KIDAPAWAN CITY (MindaNews/08 April) — Divers from the Philippine Air Force
retrieved shortly before noon today the body of Ian Caasi, a mountain
climber who drowned Maundy Thursday in Mt. Apo’s Lake Venado.

Caasi drowned while swimming together with two other members of the Mindanao
Alliance Mountaineering Club of Davao City, namely Ernesto Arluz and Jeffrey
Parantar.

The rescuers claimed cold temperature and zero visibility around Lake Venado
delayed the retrieval operation.

Chief Insp. Leo Ajero, Kidapawan City chief of police, said the helicopters
that carried the rescuers’ gadgets could not land in the lake’s vicinity due
to thick fog.  Click here for full story.
