LOOK: Photo of Some Boys Fishing in Flooded Cemetery Goes Viral

It is often said that Filipinos can always find something positive in any event, no matter how devastating – and this could be proven by this rather funny (and admirable?) photo of a couple of boys going fishing inside a flooded cemetery!

Ugh! I couldn’t imagine them eating the fish they caught from that cemetery – but then any fish they caught from there would surely be something to feed their hungry stomachs, right?

According to ABS-CBN News, the photo was taken at a cemetery in Macabebe, Pampanga. The cemetery was among the areas flooded by the onslaught of rains from typhoons Karen and Lawin which came just days after each other.

While there were other areas flooded in their town, the cemetery was the most obvious place to go fishing as they had plenty of sturdy places to stand on – but we’re also hoping these kids were just having fun and not really going to eat the fish they caught from the cemetery…

What do you think of this photo?
