19 confirmed dead in Apayao tragedy

Apayao, Philippines- 19 were confirmed dead on the truck falls in Gassud in Conner, Apayao last Thursday afternoon. The truck was bound to Rizal, Cagayan to claimed the free seeds that were distributed by the Department of Agriculture. According to Conner Municipal Police.

21 were injured and brought to the nearby hospitals while 19 were dead on the spot. The victims were all from Lattut, Cagayan and they were about to receive the free seedlings given by the government to all farmers as subsidy after the controversial tariffication law crippled the farmers in the country.

According to the investigation, they are looking into possibilities that the truck had encountered a mechanical problem, and the road is slippery and so the driver was unable to control the vehicle.

The families of the victims are lamenting over the distribution of the seedlings. They said that, if it was just distributed in their municipality it won't happen. The Department of Agriculture has already extended their help to the victims.
