“One was hit by a blunt instrument in the nose and the chin. The X-ray showed fractures of the nasal bone. The other crew sustained lacerated wounds in the right hand when he parried the stabs of a bladed instrument which required seven stitches. He was discharged earlier,” Banias said. The incident happened at around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday when the task force spotted a modified zipper or Super Hulbot in the waters of Baliguian Island, the farthest island in Concepcion, Iloilo.
