The mother and son was separated due to the heavy downpours and floods that hit their area caused by typhoon Ulysses on November 12.

Enabore was rescued in Barangay Barangka, but his wife and their 10-year-old daughter are still missing. Meanwhile, the 2-year-old toddler was among the 14 who died after Typhoon Ulysses hit Luzon. 

As rescue operations continue, officials have yet to finalize the casualties caused by the Typhoon.

As of writing, government search operations recovered at least 39 dead bodies and awaiting verification. 

The Philippine Geophysical and Astronomical Service Administration (PAGASA) compared typhoon Ulysses to typhoon Ondoy that hit the country in September 2009 in which 464 people were killed.
