Action stars Robin Padilla and Philip Salvador visited veteran actor Eddie Garcia who is currently confined at the Makati Medical Center.

It can be recalled that Garcia got involved in an on-set accident last Saturday, June 8.

A day after the incident, the two action stars visited him at the NeuroSciences and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit of the said hospital to see how he is doing.

After their visit, Salvador said that he admires Garcia’s dedication to his craft as the latter did not want to hire a stunt double even if he is already 90 years old.

“Hindi po siya inatake. Mahusay po at matibay ang puso ni Eddie Garcia. Nadisgrasya po siya, naaksidente po siya. Sumabit po ang paa niya sa kable,” he said.

“Siya po ay 90 years old. So, hindi po siya nakabalanse, so bumagsak po siya at hindi maganda ang kanyang pagbagsak.

“Hindi po siya inatake gaya ng inyong narinig. Bilib po kami kay Eddie Garcia dahil ayaw ho niyang magpa-double, nobenta-anyos na po siya,” he added.

He also asked Garcia’s fans to pray for his speedy recovery.

Padilla also posted a photo on his Instagram showing Senator-elect Christopher “Bong” Go accompanying them during the hospital visit.

He also posted a video on his Facebook account showing Salvador having a conversation with an unidentified woman about Garcia’s condition.

Padilla also said in a video shared by GMA News on Twitter that the best thing that Garcia’s fans can do right now is to pray for him.

“Siguro ang maitututulong natin sa oras na ‘to, mga dasal. Huwag na muna po tayong gumawa ng mga haka-haka. Yun lang naman po ang pakiusap namin…

“Yung mga ganito pong pagkakataon kasi mas maganda yung totoong balita ang lumabas. Yun lang po,” he said.
