The search-and-rescue exercise was part of the PNP's Independence Day celebrations. Unfortunately, these pictures from TV5 reporter France Noguera show how the drill turned to real-life drama when the team's boat capsized and members had to be rescued - by the man tasked to play the role of victim.

Hopefully the police can meet its goal of "zero casualties" this rainy season, including during its own exercises.
