‘No swim zone’ strictly enforced in Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
Members of the Manila Police District (MPD) were deployed yesterday to prevent people from swimming in Manila Bay which authorities declared as unsafe due to high levels of fecal coliform. Manila Police District chief Vicente Danao Jr. said that 15 to 20 members of the Manila Police District were assigned around the vicinity of the Manila Bay to make sure that no one would go beyond the barricade and attempt to swim in the bay. But despite the presence of the policemen there, an 11-year-old girl was reported to now be critical condition after she nearly drowned while swimming with friends at the Manila Bay on Tuesday morning.
