Drinking session between father, son turns tragic
MANILA – A drinking session between a father and his 20-year-old son in Ilog, Negros Occidental turned tragic after the two got into an argument.
Police said John Michael Peria was drinking with his father, Vicente, when they got into a heated discussion about Peria being unemployed.
Vicente allegedly hit his son, prompting the younger Peria to retaliate and hit his father in the head with a piece of plywood.
Peria’s father was rushed to the hospital, but passed away due to the head injury.
According to Peria’s aunt, Daisy, there is always violence whenever the two would drink together.
Peria said he regrets the incident, while police are waiting if the family will file charges against the suspect. -- Report from Yasmin Dormido, dzMM
