Actor-athlete Jake Cuenca was rushed to the hospital Tuesday morning after figuring in a bike accident.

In an interview with his father Juanto Cuenca on DZMM radio, he shared that a truck suddenly stopped in front of Jake as the latter was training at the Mall of Asia grounds.

Si Jake kasi every morning, he trains for Ironman sa may MOA. Biglang nagpreno ang isang malaking truck and he did not have time to brake, so tinamaan niya yung truck. Dumiretso siya sa ospital. Nasa emergency room siya, nasa trauma,” he said.

He said his son was taken to the hospital by his driver for immediate treatment, as there were no ambulances on site.

‘Yung driver niya mismo [ang nagdala sa kanya sa ospital] because there were no ambulances on site. Sa Medical City, that’s where he is now. Meron siyang two broken bones on the hand. He had to have stitches in his chin. They are still continuing with the tests kung ano pa ang damage sa kanya,” he said.

The actor was conscious all throughout but the accident that happened around 7 a.m. caused him a lot of pain.

He has been discharged but is due for surgery this Friday because of the broken bones on his hand.
