“All his doctors are doing their best to assure that he gets the best care,” Garcia’s family said through a statement from GMA Network’s corporate communications, which also clarified that the 90-year-old thespian neither slipped into a coma nor figured in an accident, as various social media posts claimed.

The incident took place at around noon in Tondo, Manila, where Garcia was set to tape scenes for a coming GMA 7 drama series with a working title “Rosang Agimat.”
