Manila Bulletin has this news report today with a headline that pratically tells the whole story: "Couple drown in Manila Bay after giant sweeps them away at breakwater."
Breakwater certainly is not a safe place to take a stroll. No matter where it is located. Any time a wave can come up to engulf you and sweep you away. We don't know when, why, how, or where it will happen. But it will happen -- this time in Manila Bay.
