CEBU CITY. A 7 year old boy named Jason Baldado who was caught in a video climbing a coconut tree to keep himself safe from the flood in Malabuyoc, Cebu has earned the netizens' praises and admiration for his genuine bravery.
Tropical depression 'Quennie' brought heavy rains in many parts of the Philippines and triggered flooding in some areas in Southern Cebu. The video which was recorded and posted by Janetta Fabrigar Obiasada earlier today, November 27, has the boy getting orders from the people around him to climb the coconut tree to escape from the raging waters of the flooded Saliring River.
According to reports, Jason was eventually rescued, however his mother, Alona Baldado, who was reportedly behind the bamboo sheet where the boy was earlier situated didn't survive.
