Occidental Mindoro Vice Gov. Peter Alfaro laments another tragedy befalling the Gem Ver fishing vessel


It looks like 2019 is not yet done bringing tragedy to the fishing vessel Gem Ver.

After figuring in a maritime accident where it was hit and damaged by a Chinese vessel, the Gem Ver did not fare well during the onslaught of typhoon Ursula.

In a Facebook post, Occidental Mindoro Vice Gov. Peter Alfaro shared a photo of the Gem Ver overturned on the beach and parts of it looking damaged.

He said Gem Ver was one of several boats affected by Ursula.

Hopefully, help will pour in once again to get the Gem Ver and other vessels back on the water!

“another tragedy struck Gem Ver fishing vessel of San Roque, San Jose along with other boats as Ursula wrought havoc on Southern part of Occidental Mindoro on Christmas day 📸 Mark Kevin Público,” Alfaro posted.
