Suspected food poising downed some 30 students of the San Roque National High School in Alburquerque after an acquaintance party in the school Tuesday, July 26, 2016.

The victims were rushed to the Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital (GCGMH) in Tagbilaran City earlier today, July 27, 2016, after they started to fall ill since yesterday night.

According to the school’s principal Boy Fuersas, the students had the get-together over lunch at 12 noon and the attendees shared the served fare.

The students partook of the lunch spread which included fish ceviche, locally known as ‘kinilaw na isda’, grilled pork, chicken, noodles and ‘butsi’, among others.

School officials said that the students started to fall ill and experience abdominal pain on the night right after the party, but their families downplayed the symptoms.

However, some of the victims asked to be brought to the hospital earlier today as their abdominal pain reportedly became more intense while they started to turn pale.

Thirteen of the victims were initially rushed to GCGMH for treatment and the other students followed shortly after experiencing the same symptoms.

School officials are currently investigating to pinpoint which of the served food caused the apparent food poisoning. (Allen Doydora)
