Boy Survives Aswang Attack
On September 22, 2004, in Tantangan, South Cotabato, 16 year-old Tata Porras and his 14 year-old brother Michael were sleeping in a rice field when Tata was awoken by a strange squeaking sound. Upon investigating, Tata discovered a black dog with glowing red eyes about to bite the neck of his sleeping brother. Grabbing his gun, Tata shot at the creature which fled into the darkness. Unfortunately Michael was hit in the leg and required hospital treatment. People arriving to the scene to help heard Tata yell, 'Aswang, Aswwang'.
