“Kita nmn tlga sa video na napatid sya sa wire. Dahil sa katandaan narin mahina narin yan sa balance kaya madali na natumba at masama pa ung pagkakatumba nya.”
“The production didn't make sure that the area is hazzard-free! Alam na man nilang may involved na senior actor!”
“Natisod sya sa wire tapos na out balance kaya natumba at na heart attack. Matanda na kasi si Sir Eddie dapat ingatan talaga sya.”
“Kita nman po tlga na sumabit un paa n’ya s cable na naging dahilan ng pagbagsak n Mr Eddie Garcia since lumabas un video n’ya un na po napansin ko. Just saying what i saw on the video of him.”
