Veteran actor Eddie Garcia suffered a neck fracture when he tripped and fell while shooting a TV series for GMA Network, a doctor attending to him said Sunday.

Dr. Enrique Lagman, Garcia's family doctor, said the actor did not suffer a heart attack as earlier reported.

"The doctors ruled out heart attack and stroke as proven by several validating tests done in Mary Johnston hospital. He is in critical condition due to severe cervical fracture," he said in a statement released by Garcia's family.

At present, Garcia, who is 90 years old, is in a deep sleep.

GMA earlier on Sunday said it was reviewing a viral video of veteran actor Eddie Garcia supposedly collapsing while shooting an upcoming television series for the media network.

Garcia was immediately taken to the Mary Johnston Hospital in Tondo, Manila after the incident.

The family of the veteran actor said they are still dealing with the situation and asked for privacy and prayers.

Garcia is widely regarded as one of the most versatile actors in the Philippine entertainment industry, portraying both lead characters and villains in action, comedy, drama, and even fantasy films and television series in a career spanning more than half a century.

His last project with ABS-CBN was a role in the Coco Martin-led primetime teleserye "Ang Probinsyano," portraying a drug lord. He bid farewell to the part last February.

    2. neck fracture na baka lalong grumabe nang binuhat siya ng mga tao ng walang neck support....

    3. 9:14 kaya nga. nagpanic na rin kasi sila at gusto nang madala sa hospital si sir eddie. hindi naman makikialam mga yan kung may standby na medic. andami talaga lapses ng production dito - sa role na binigay, sa sched ng shooting, yung set na may lubak at wires, at wala ngang medic considering may 90yo senior silang kasama.

      Delete
    4. 7:17 Agree! Sa mga accidents or mga natumba bigla na cases, dapat wait nyo ang paramedics. Nakita ko sa video kung paano siya tinayo & kinuha. Kasi pwedeng naging worse yung condition nya kung may neck & spine fracture siya. Walang nakaabang na paramedics usually sa mga location shootings. And wala ding safety measures ang production. Sa mga cables wires & hazardous materials dapat may cover yan like a rubber thing para hindi maka disgrasya. Dito sa abroad ganyan ang ginagawa pero sa Pinas walang ganyan kasi low budget.

    8. Also, why would they need an action scene for a 90-year old actor in this weather condition? Kung ang middle-aged healthy person nga sumusuko sa init.

    3. Tama! Tapos tawag ng medic - Wala man lang stretcher or stabilizer. He was carried by people na imbes sana makatulong, might have aggravated his injuries.

      Delete
    4. Why deny the truth 9:24 kung its evident naman talaga na may kapabayaang nangyari? The production should have taken more cautionary steps given his delicate age.

      Delete
    5. 9:24 Sa lahat naman ng aksidente, inaalam ang cause, kung may kelangan bang managot or what. Pinoy lang ba gumagawa nun?? Sa US nga, daming legal actions kasi ang sipag ng mga tao magfile ng personal injury claims.

      Delete
    6. Yes. Oo tama walang gusto mangyri yari yan since accident. But! They shoudl’ve known better, laking network mo na sablay pa din. Ni stretcher wala. Baka more damage nga yung pag buhat sa kanya.

      Delete
    7. Accident really happen. Pero sana yung prepared naman for ano gagawin pag may accident. Stretcher man lang sana. Nakaka sad makita kung pano lang siya binuhat ng mano mano. Yung leeg tumiklop lalo eh dun pala ang natamaan.hay hay hay.

    8. Kamalian ng production staff:
      -pinatakbo sa init ang isang 90 yr old
      -hinayaang may wire na nakaharang
      -walang medic
      -walang stretcher

      Delete
    9. Let this be a lesson for GmA. Sa totoo lang when I watch their soaps, evident and ka cheapan and poor production. Magaling sila sa news.pero laglag talaga sila pagdating dto. Wag naman sana tipirin at i sacrifice ang safety ng actors. Saka di ko talaga ubos maisip kung anong klaseng story yan na 90 yo na eh me action scenes pa.

  5. The network's liable for this. Just like Liza,damaged a body part while on duty. Imagine that,it might not be back on its original state. Now this,Manoy this time at such a very old age. Praying for his fast & full recovery.

  9. He suffered fracture from the fall, tapos dumagdag pa sa injury yung pagkabuhat sa kanya. Kaya dapat may medic na agad rumescue eh. They have lifters na kung saan magmamaintain kahit papano ang alignment ng spine nya.

    ReplyDelete
  10. First of all, sa edad kong 30, im a fan of sir Eddie. Mga luma nyang palabas na napanood ko sa cable noon hanggang sa mga current projects nya. Versatile and best actor talaga. Bida or kontrabida, mayaman o mahirap effecrive sa role na ginagampanan nya.

    Saddened by this incident. Cant help to think medyo negligent ang gma sa safety. Remember Christopher de leon was shot during their taping for a gma project?

    Not blaming pero sana mas maingat na ang lahat sa set. Considering mainit na talaga di tulad ng mga taong nakalipas. Dapat may standby medic and dapat chineck talaga ang safety ng lhat.

    Hope he recovers well.

  11. Sana makarecover si Manoy. Saludo ako sa kanya dahil sa passion and love nya for his work. Hindi lahat ng tao gusto mag trabaho. Tapos dahil sa kapabayaan ng show eh napahamak ang artist nila. Pag buhat palang sa kanya ng crew eh maling mali na. Malamang sa malamang nakadagdag pa sa neck injury nya ang maling pag buhat ng crew. Sana lahat ng mamamayan natin maturuan ng first aid. Kahit sa school palang. Para alam kagad ang dapat gawin. Or di dapat gawin. Praying for you Mr. Eddie Garcia.

  13. Cervical fracture is painful, especially for his age na brittle na ang bones. Bakit naman kasi pinapatakbo pa. Get well soon po.

    ReplyDelete
  14. They shouldn't have risked given his vital age. For God's sake he's 90 and you let him do challenging action roles. I get it, he's an action star but they should've been extra cautious.

  15. Hindi man lang nakastretcher. Buhat buhat lang nila.

  16. That is why it is critical when a person is being transferred after a fall. The way he was carried talaga ng magiging severe ang fracture. Yan ang problema sa pinas bara bara ang pagtransfer. Dapat secure kaagad ang neck after a fall or coma. Especially sya na 90 y/o na.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Bukod dun sa wire may naka-usli pang semento sa dadaanan nya kaya tuluyan syang natalisod. Action scene yan, mabilisan ang kilos ng mga artista, kaya dapat sini-secure muna ang lugar na gagalawan o dadaanan ng artista bago mag-take para maiwasan ang aksidente. May kapabayaan talagang nangyari. Tapos 1pm pa shinooting na katindian ng init. Posibleng ma-heat stroke kahit sino. Pero sa kaso ni Eddie, napatid talaga sya na dahilan kaya sya bumagsak.

  18. It will take a miracle to recover.
    At his age, delikado din kung operahan ang fracture.
    Hoping a miracle happens to our beloved actor, Mr. Eddie Garcia.

    3. C2-c3 fracture is too high level . Inooperahan talaga yan kasi pag yan nagalaw ma daming organ ang matatamaan na supply ng nerve na lumalabas sa c2. Tanging pwedeng gane jan secure ng neck brace na Mathias. Yung gamit ni Gloria arroyo. Yan ang tama ng grace para kay sir Eddie.

    3. I read that his partner Lilibeth had him immediately transferred to Makati Medical where he is now.

    4. Wag tayo magmarunong. Perhaps they were waiting for his condition to stabilize first so he can be transported safely. Tondo is far from Makati or QC.

      Delete
    5. Hindi agad agad naglilipat ng patient na na-CPR upon admission. Stabilize muna ng 24-48hrs bago ma-determine if indeed stable to transfer to a larger hospital.

  23. Na imagine ko un more damage kce basta binuhat n lang. hayzzzz wala man lng stretcher

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aw! So Sad tapos the way na binuhat pa siya after the fall is not good for his fracture baka lalong nakasama. Everyone should learned from this experience na if this happened just check if the person is still breathing and have pulse or heart beat. And if needed give CPR of course. Wag gagalawin the body until the medical help arrives.

  28. this is heartbreaking lalo na sa mga kagaya namin na may kapamilya na nasa ganyang sitwasyon. ang aksidente ay aksidente kahit anong alaga o kasama mo sya lagi kapag aksidente hindi talaga maiiwasan, sana magkaroon ng mahabang pasensya ang family ni Sir Eddie dahil mahirap ang kalagayan niya. Pero sana kargohin din ng network ang nangyari dahil 90 na yung artista pinagbarilan pa ng role, nakakaasar kahit sabihin na ginusto yun nung artista sila pa din ang may reponsibilidad

    1. Accident is something you can’t predict but it could have been prevented kung naging aware ang production staff sa surroundings ng location.

  29. Wala bang naka-stand by na paramedics sa mga shooting/taping? They should require all production companies to have a medical team on locations. Di naman natin masisisi ang production staff if ang first instinct nila is to take an injured person sa hospital.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kaya dapat may mga professional medics on standby palagi! Kasi ang instance panic talaga mga tao sa paligid nya at kung ano nalang gagawin,dahil yun ang alam nila at iniisip nilang makakatulong,kaya ayun basta bubuhatin nalang talaga sya,instinc na ng emergency coz 'di nga sila trained for emergency situation. Biruin mo 90 years old na yung binubuhat at nagkakagulo sila,juzme ang mga buto ni Manoy. Kaya dapat may professional medic dun sa set na yun!

    1. 10:55 sobrang kunat kasi ng GMA. Sobrang tinitipid ang production at ultimo safety ng artista hindi magarantiyahan. Wala man lang medic na stand by sa mga action scenes na ganyan na kadalasan pinagmumulan ng aksidente.

      Delete
  32. Wala man lang bang medics sa site? I think nakadagdag pa ung pagbuhat nila without proper training. Anlaking kumpanya pero parang tumipid sa budget.

  33. I dont understand kung bakit binibigyan pa ng ganyang eksena mga senior actors, di ba pwede kadouble na lang. Kahit pa actor sya at trabaho nila yan pero hello reality check muna din, imagine patakbuhin ang lolo o lola nyo e di ba inaalalayan na dapat sila sa edad na yun. hindi naman sya 30 yrs old para ipaki pagsabayan. Isa sa iniiwasan sa elders natin ang mga fall incidents tapos eto deliberate pa. Since sya ang actor nyo dapat ginawan nila ng paraan yan special handling/treatment na. Hindi sa naninisi pero dapat may managot.
