MANILA, Philippines – A self-confessed drug courier survived a salvage attempt in Laguna on Monday evening.

Marwin Delarosa suffered 4 gunshot wounds to the head and body and was left for dead by his 2 companions along the highway of Luisiana in Laguna province.
 
Concerned citizens found the 29-year-old victim and brought him to the hospital. They also reported the incident to authorities.
 
While in the hospital, Delarosa admitted that the attempt against his life stemmed from his decision to report to police his experience as a drug courier for his boss.
 
As a result, members of the drug syndicate hit back by trying to silence him.
 
According to Delarosa, he and 2 companions were onboard his car on their way to Laguna from Quezon province.
 
His companions suddenly shot him. When they thought that he was dead, they left him along the highway. 
 
Delarosa is still under observation at an undisclosed hospital. 
 
Police also provided him security at the hospital while the suspects are still at large. Zyann Ambrosio, ABS-CBN News
