23 dead, 6 missing after boat capsizes near Philippine capital

Typhoon Doksuri struck the Philippines this week, bringing winds of up to 175 km/h (108 mph) to the heavily populated Luzon island. Amid the strong winds, a passenger boat capsized near the capital, Manila, resulting in at least 19 fatalities.

The exact number of people on board remains unclear, but 40 individuals were rescued, according to the disaster agency of Binangonan town.

The Coast Guard attributed the capsizing to strong winds that prompted passengers to panic and shift to one side of the boat, causing it to capsize.
