GMA Network has released a press statement about the absence of a medical team during the taping of a TV series last June 8 where 90-year-old actor Eddie Garcia had an accident.
The statement goes:
It has been the Network’s practice to have medical personnel and ambulance crew on standby whenever the production is executing big action scenes during taping. This has been likewise the practice of other GMA programs. Given this, we are currently investigating the absence of a medical team on the set last Saturday, June 8.
GMA Network is deeply saddened with what happened to Mr. Eddie Garcia and the management is committed to getting to the bottom of this unfortunate incident.
