Two soldiers died while eight others were injured after a military truck fell into a ravine in Barangay Doroluman, Antipas, North Cotabato on Monday.

Lt. Silver Belvis, spokesperson of 39th Infantry Battalion, said the accident happened after a child suddenly crossed the road that prompted the driver to swerve the vehicle.

The KM450 truck flipped and fell 10 feet down the ravine. 

The victims who belonged to 39th IB were rushed to the hospital. Two of them didn't make it alive, while eight others sustained injuries. 

Belvis said the troops came from security operations and were on their way back to Dilion patrol base.
