Eddie Garcia’s partner of 33 years, Lilibeth Romero, has spoken up about the 90-year-old actor’s accident on the set of his upcoming GMA-7 teleserye.
KAMI learned that Lilibeth is disappointed with what happened, stating that Eddie’s accident could have been prevented with proper precautions.
The longtime partner of the actor told The Philippine Star that Eddie broke his spinal cord while shooting an action scene when he tripped on a cable wire.
“I learned that when he stumbled on a cable wire and hit his head on the pavement, he broke his spinal cord. It was the ‘freakest’ of accidents that could have been prevented.
“I was told that the accident happened on the third shoot of the same scene from another angle… they should have checked the condition of the street and if cable wires were scattered all around. It was an accident that could have been prevented,” she said, as reported by The Philippine Star (authored by Ricky Lo).
KAMI reported earlier that Eddie’s blood pressure has stabilized although he is still in a critical condition.
