    The Education agency denied an earlier report made by one of the victims' mother that claimed that a student and three out-of-school youths who drowned in Biñan, Laguna on November 23 were attempting to submit self-learning modules.

    DepEd stressed that as per the police investigation, the four youths were on their way to bring clothes and not learning modules since school was closed that day.

    "According to the police report, they (victims) went out to deliver clothes to the fisherman father of two of the victims. This was confirmed by the fisherman father himself," DepEd's statement said.

    "On the day of the incident, the public was informed that schools were closed due to recent typhoons and flooding and thus, retrieval of the learning materials were also suspended," DepEd added.

    The agency expressed their condolences to the victims' families for the unfortunate incident. "We are saddened to learn about their sudden passing, and we are sending our deepest condolences to the grieving families and friends of the victims as we pray for their eternal repose," it said.

She also reiterated how the mother already admitted that she made a mistake when she said the victim was on the way to submitting modules.

    "Mayor Wilredo Arman R. Dimaguila Jr., the city mayor of Biñan, has been monitoring the said incident and has stated that the incident has no connection with the school requirements," Agustin said.

    "The mother claimed that she made a mistake in saying that the child was going to submit the modules," Agustin added.
