Yesterday the class went to a trip to Cayo District, were they went to see  Che-Chem Ha caves in Cayo.

According to the report, The two teenaged students in San Roman Village, Corozal were the school is located, were identified as 16 year old male Edgar Puck from Patchakan and 15 year old female Anahli Zepeda from San Joaquin, Corozal.

On the way back while travelling in a group on a Morales bus,  the bus stopped to let the students swim in the river. Unexpectedly, that's when the two teenager's drowned on the river. As a class trip this was not planned in their list.

 Several tour guides, police officers and worried residents rescued Puck's body within an hour. It was later transported to the morgue in the San Ignacio Community Hospital. As for Zepeda it was also found an hour later and was later transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital.
