They were on an exposure trip to Biak na Bato, and students claimed that they would not take the final exam if they joined the trip and wrote a report instead. Rains were heavy during that day, which caused a flash flood to occur. Despite warnings from another student tour guide about the weather, the group still pushed through the field trip.

Tragedy happens, whether prepared or not.
