THE two young girls who allegedly saw a mythical creature called manananggal in Talisay City will undergo a stress debriefing.
This was disclosed by Mayor Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas on Friday, February 10.
Gullas said the City Social Welfare and Development will undertake the debriefing and counseling after distributing relief packs to the almost 100 families who were affected by the fire that struck Barangay San Roque on Monday night, February 6.
Gullas advised the Talisaynons to keep praying and be vigilant not only against evil creatures but also criminal elements.
The Talisay City police, meanwhile, urged the people to maintain their composure amid stories circulating in public about the manananggal who appeared in front of the two young girls around 8 p.m. Tuesday, February 7, in Sitio Mangga, Barangay Dumlog.
They also asked the people not to spread false information that could create public anxiety.
Talisay City Police Chief Lieutenant Colonel Randy Caballes said the people in Sitio Mangga began to panic after the two children went home terrified and reported that they saw the mythical creature on top of their neighbor's roof.
Caballes said that their investigation is still ongoing and that they have not yet obtained any evidence regarding the so-called manananggal. (BBT/TPT)
