MANILA -- Freshman Philippine Military Academy (PMA) cadet Mario Telan Jr. died due to suffocation caused by drowning, an autopsy report revealed Sunday.
Baguio City Police said they have yet to find any indication of foul play, but they are reviewing Telan's last movements based on the CCTV footage given by the PMA.
Telan, 20, was found at the bottom of the academy's pool on Friday, following a swimming class.
The PMA earlier discounted the possibility of foul play in the cadet's death but admitted that it observed some infractions and irregularities in the manner that the exercise was conducted.
The academy honored the cadet on Saturday and vowed to assist his family and give due military recognition to him. --With a report from Michelle Soriano, ABS-CBN News
