NEGROS OCCIDENTAL – A Korean national who was on vacation died after he fell off a cliff at a resort in Murcia town here on Thursday.

Police said Kim Kyung-jung, 64, slipped and fell off a cliff while trekking at the Mambukal Resort. He was with two other Koreans and a local guide when the incident happened.

Foul play was ruled out, police said.

Kim was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital in Bacolod City.
Immigration records show he arrived in the Philippines last August 16.

He had been allowed to stay in the province until September 15 as a tourist, said immigration officer Mita Chuvy Arguelles.

The victim's family is set to arrive in Bacolod City on Friday.

The provincial government vowed to give assistance to the family of the Korean national.
