Boracay Temporarily Closed After Defecation Incident

A certain portion of the popular tourist destination Boracay has been temporarily closed after the defecation incident involving a foreign national.

Earlier this week, the video footage of an alleged Chinese woman letting her child defecate on the beach spread like wildfire on social media. Another woman buried the child’s poop and its underwear in the sand.

The viral video of the Chinese tourist and her child garnered a massive amount of criticisms from the online community because of their disgusting act in the country’s top tourist spot. The defecating incident prompted the Boracay authorities to make immediate actions regarding the issue.

The Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force (BIATF) ordered the temporary closure of the area for two to three days. The group cordoned the area with markers 100 meters wide on the shoreline to conduct a clean-up drive in the area.

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu prohibits swimming in the area and explained that they would not tolerate such incidents. Puyat said that offenders would face corresponding sanctions and penalties.
