Ben&Ben assures fans that bassist is okay after stage accident

Bassist Agnes Reoma got injured during a concert at the Don Bosco Technical Institute in Makati City.

The award-winning indie folk-pop band Ben&Ben has assured fans that their bassist “is safe” after an onstage accident last Saturday.

Bassist Agnes Reoma got injured during a concert at the Don Bosco Technical Institute in Makati City.

Reoma fell through the stage after a hole opened up, while she was jumping to their performance of “Ride Home.”

The accident was caught on video and was uploaded on social media by a netizen with Twitter handle @GeloMigBaylon.

“Sana hindi ka po nagka-injury ate @agnesreoma! Still, thank you for the solid night!! @BenAndBenMusic,” he tweeted.

In reply, the band tweeted: “@agnesreoma has been injured but is safe and conscious.”

“We’ll update you more soon,” they added.

Vocalist Miguel Guico, violinist Keifer Cabugao, and a staff member quickly came to Reoma’s aid after she fell through the hole.

After a couple of minutes, Reoma could be seen crawling out and coming out under the stage floor, eliciting cheers from the audience.

But she was walking with a slight limp.

The accident occurred during Don Bosco Makati’s 66th Foundation Day celebration.
