Aside from what Jestoni Alarcon recounted about what happened on the set of Rosang Agimat, another veteran actor Phillip Salvador shared his reaction upon seeing the video taken on the set of Eddie Garcia’s comeback project on GMA Network showing him tripping over a wire causing him to fall.
Reacting to the initial news that the multi-awarded actor suffered a “severe heart attack,” in a video shared by Robin Padilla, Phillip Salvador said, “Nabalitaan ninyo na inatake daw si EG, Eddie Garcia…. Dun po sa lahat ng mga fans niya, sa mga followers niya, hindi po siya inatake. Mahusay po at matibay po ang puso ni Eddie Garcia. Nadisgrasya po s’ya. Naaksidente po s’ya. Sumabit po ang paa niya sa kable.
“Siya po ay 90 years old. So hindi po siya nakabalanse. Bumagsak po siya at hindi maganda ang kanyang pagbagsak,” he added.
He also contradicted the initial statement shared by GMA Network to the media. “Hindi po siya inatake tulad po ng inyong mga narinig.
“Bilib po kami kay Eddie Garcia dahil ayaw po niyang magpadouble. Nobenta anyos na siya. Hinihiling po namin sa inyo ngayon ang dasal para sa isa pang hari ng pelikulang Pilipino.”
