The doctor attending to veteran actor Eddie Garcia clarified on Sunday, June 9 that the 90-year-old is suffering a neck fracture and not a heart attack as what has been reported earlier.
According to Dr. Enrique Lagman, Garcia’s family doctor, he suffered neck fracture when he tripped and fell while shooting a TV series for GMA Network. However, as per the actor’s family, the 90-year-old veteran actor is now in deep sleep.
On Saturday, netizens were shocked after news of Garcia being comatose after an accident in their set broke out.
Meanwhile, GMA earlier said that they will review videos of renown actor Eddie Garcia collapsing at the set of his upcoming show in the television network.
“The video of Mr Eddie Garcia faltering in his steps & eventually collapsing has reached GMA,” the TV network said in a statement.
“We are seriously reviewing the said video as well as other videos of the same scene which our cameras also took before we make any conclusions on what really transpired,” GMA added.
They said that they will wait for the family or the doctor of Garcia to issue a formal update on his condition and that they continue to pray for the quick recovery of the 90-year old actor, fondly referred to as ‘Manoy’ by his colleagues and fans.
