Filipino man dies after 'exercise punishment' for breaking curfew to get water
Darren Manaog Penaredondo was allegedly stopped by officers while getting water for his family during curfew hours last week.
It's reported that the 28-year-old was allegedly forced to perform an exercise 300 times as a punishment for violating the curfew.
According to UK correspondent Adam Gilchrist, the man died of his injuries at home the following day.
Meanwhile, the police chief of General Trias City maintains that officers do not enforce physical punishment for those found violating curfew rules.
