17 rescued, 2 dead in Sulu sea mishaps

Zamboanga City—A one-year-old baby and sixteen others survived a sea mishap off Patikul and Luuk shores as the Naval Task Group-Sulu rescued passengers of two wooden-hulled boats that sailed through raging waters Thursday late afternoon and Friday morning.

Fishermen from Luuk town in Sulu and personnel of the Philippine Navy‘s Naval Task Group-Sulu rescued 17 passengers of M/L Putli Dahiran and M/L Friendly and recovered the bodies of two fatalities, Naval Forces Western Mindanao (NFWM) acting spokesman Lt. Chester Ross Cabaltera said.

The fatalities were identified as Hja Suhula Radjuli, 70, and Sitti Radjuli, 33.

M/L Friendly came from Maluso, Basilan, and was on its way to Sulu while M/L Puti Dahiran was several meters away from the port of Jolo when it lost engine power.

The survivors were brought to the Naval Task Group-Sulu and 4th Marine Brigade headquarters for medical attention.
