Bacolod, Negros Occidental — The 35-year-old call center team leader identified as Gwendolyn Dellera died after she drowned at a resort in Murcia town.
A team building activity involving call center agents together with their own team leader Gwendolyn Dellera turned tragic last Saturday, October 04, 2014. The group were happily swimming in river in Bacolod when all of them were hit by a strong water current. Gwendolyn was carried away from the team prompting the members to make a rescue attempt. However, they failed to catch the victim using a rope.
Rescuers from the municipality of Murcia and 303rd Infantry Battalion made an intensive search in the river but they failed to find the body of Gwendolyn Dellera as well. After two days of continuous thorough search, they finally found the call center team leader. However, Gwendolyn was already dead.
Gwendolyn Dellera was originally from Barangay Umapad, Mandaue City, Cebu and was working in Teleperformance Bacolod City.
The call center has not issued their official statement yet regarding the accident.
