GMA Network said on Sunday, June 9, 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.
GMA said that 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.
In a statement, the family of Garcia said that the actor suffered a severe heart attack during the taping of his upcoming show.
“Please continue praying for Tito Eddie’s fast recovery,” the statement read. “At 90, he is still doing what he loves most, acting. He is a pillar of the industry and is very passionate about his craft.”
“We would like to request his fans and everyone to pray with us so he could get better the soonest time possible,” the statement added.
Based on latest reports, Garcia has been transferred to the intensive care unit of the Makati Medical Center from the Mary Johnston Hospital in Tondo, Manila.
