Veteran actor Eddie Garcia is in critical condition, his doctor said, from a neck fracture he suffered when he tripped and fell while shooting a TV series for GMA Network Saturday.

In a statement, Dr. Enrique Lagman ruled out heart attack as precursor to his client’s condition as earlier reported in various news sites.

He said, “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.”

As of Sunday, Garcia, 90, is still in a deep sleep.

Meanwhile, GMA said in a statement it is still reviewing videos of the incident.

It read in part: “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.

“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.” (Rampador Alindog)
