The explosion caused him to lose some of his fingers. He also suffered from burns and injuries on his limbs.

His mother, who was earlier reported to be also fighting off severe wounds, has died.

She was just 17.

Initial investigation

Police report said that the explosion occurred on  January 16 at about 11:40 in the morning in the house of Lito Barro in Zapanta St., Barangay San Andres, this town.

According to Baby Angelito’s great grandmother Marcelo Castro y Eusebio (Eusebio), she was hanging clothes when Baby Angelito’s father, entered the house.

He was identified as Jayson lcaranom y Delos Reyes, 40 years old.

Suspect Icaranom, who was carrying a folded jacket and a matchbox, then sat on the floor of the living room.

Afterwards, Eusebio was the suspect lit the IED with the cigarette he had been smoking.

Explosion ensued.

Baby Angelito, his mother and his father, the suspect, were all severely injured.

The victims were immediately brought to the Pandan District Hospital by Ruel Domingo, Benito Barro, and Romeo Barro, all residents of Barangay San Andres.

lnvestigator-on-case POl Jessica B. Cuya, revealed that the suspect died in Pandan District Hospital on January 16.

Angelito’s mother subsequently died.

Offers of help

Pledges for support have been offered to the baby after locals learned of his plight through Facebook.

A group that calls themselves “Tres Musketeros Pandanon” first brought public attention to Baby Angelito’s situation.

Since then, help has been trickling.

Howl of protest against illegal fishing

Meanwhile, the same group also voiced its indignation against illegal fishing.

It says that the use of the suspect of the IED, which is usually used by illegal fishermen, is an indication of how commonplace the practice of dynamite fishing is in the area.

Tres Muskiteros is therefore calling all officials to strictly enforce all  laws which would protect the marine treasures of Catanduanes.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
