An audience member died, while another was injured after they fell from the bleachers during a studio taping of the variety game show “Wowowin” on Tuesday, January 22.

The producers of the show confirmed on Wednesday that a fatality was identified as Estrella Bognot. She, along with another audience member, Milagros Espiritu, fell from the bleachers of the studio after they “lost their balance while singing and dancing during the opening act.

According to a statement that was first published on their mother studio’s social media site, Bognot ’s head hit a fire extinguisher, while Espiritu suffered a fracture, the producers added, citing the report of a security officer who witnessed the incident.

The statement also said that both victims were immediately attended to by studio paramedics and were then brought to nearby Delgado Hospital. However, it’s still unclear whether Bognot died before she was rushed to the hospital.

“WBR Entertainment and GMA Network deeply commiserate with, and extended immediate assistance to, the families and loved ones of the victims,” the statement said.
