GMA reviewing video of Eddie Garcia collapsing during taping
MANILA, Philippines — GMA Network on Sunday said that it was “seriously reviewing” the video of veteran actor Eddie Garcia reportedly collapsing during a taping for an upcoming show.
Garcia is currently under “critical condition” after suffering from a “severe heart attack” while shooting his upcoming show for the said network on Saturday.
“The video of Mr Eddie Garcia faltering in his steps & eventually collapsing has reached GMA. 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,” the network said in a statement.
“We will wait for the family or their doctor to issue a formal update on his condition. Meanwhile, we continue to pray for his quick recovery,” it added.
In an official statement released by his family, doctors attending to the 90-year-old actor were “doing their best to assure that he gets the best care.”
Fellow actors from the showbiz industry, such as Sharon Cuneta, Janno Gibbs, and Vice Ganda, have asked the public to pray for Garcia immediately following the incident. (Editor: Julie Espinosa)
