The family of actor Eddie Garcia is hoping for a miracle as he remains in critical condition at the Makati Medical Center, according to Dr. Tony Rebosa, one of his attending physicians.
Among Garcia’s visitors late Monday was 1-Pacman Party-list Rep. Mikee Romero, whose mother Lilibeth has been the actor’s partner for 33 years now.
The 90-year-old Garcia fell and sustained neck fracture while taping for a television series for GMA Network, allegedly an accident as doctors ruled out heart attack and stroke.
GMA said the incident is under investigation.
“It has been the network’s practice to have medical personnel and ambulance crew on standby whenever the production is executing big action scenes during taping. This has been likewise the practice of other GMA programs. Given this, we are currently investigating the absence of a medical team on the set last Saturday, June 8,” a GMA statement read.
