The fun and light-hearted vibe of GMA-7’s afternoon variety show “Wowowin” quickly turned the other way around after a studio member died due to an accident on set.

The tragic incident happened during the show’s taping on January 22 during the opening number.

Two audience members were singing and dancing along with the music and together with everyone else in the studio when they accidentally lost their balance and fell from the bleachers.

Host Willie Revillame has yet to speak up about the incident, but GMA Network and WBR Entertainment have already issued a joint statement on January 23.

Published on gmanetwork.com, the statement reads:

“During the Wowowin taping on Tuesday, 22 January 2019 on or about 5:25 in the afternoon, an unfortunate accident transpired during the opening number of the show. One member from the studio audience was injured, while another lost her life.

According to the statement of Security Marshal Roel Batang who witnessed the accident, the two audience, who were at the bleachers of the studio, lost their balance while singing and dancing during the opening act.
