90-year-old veteran actor Eddie Garcia, popularly known as “Manoy”, is reportedly in critical observation after a bad fall suffered while shooting on location for a GMA-7 teleserye in Tondo, Manila earlier today, June 8 (Saturday).

A statement from Garcia’s family said that “doctors are doing their best to assure that he gets the best care,” and they extend their gratitude to all who’ve extended concerns and prayers.

Entertainment columnist Leo Bukas wrote in a Facebook post that Garcia was quickly rushed to the Mary Johnston Hospital: “Let’s all pray and hope na maging okey ang kalagayan ni Manoy Eddie Garcia.”

Dave Rojo, a vetaran writer and graphic arts designer and director Arman Reyes also posted the same information as Bukas, while actress Vivian Velez added the actor was in “critical condition.”
A version of this story appeared on Manila Bulletin Entertainment.
