Eddie Garcia’s family agrees to ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ order

Veteran actor Eddie Garcia is still in a comatose state as he suffers through a cervical fracture—commonly known as a broken neck—after an on-set accident while filming for a television show last June 8. 

According to a statement from Dr. Tony Rebosa released last June 14, Eddie’s family has signed off on a DNR status, also known as Do Not Resucitate, which means medical staff will not be administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the patient if ever his heart stops beating.

“Please be informed that the family of Mr. Eddie Garcia has not authorized nor has it consented to withdrawal of life support,” Dr. Rebosa clarified. 

Eddie is under intensive care at the Makati Medical Center. 

Eddie has been active in the industry since the late 1940s. His last project with ABS-CBN was in the hit series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” alongside Coco Martin. He also appeared in the 2014 blockbuster “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin” and in the 2017 action-fantasy “Ang Panday.”
