Jake Cuenca personally visited the delivery rider who was hit by a stray bullet following a cop chase he was involved in back in October.
In an Instagram post on Sunday, November 7, the "Viral Scandal" actor shared some photos during his visit to Eleazar Martinito, who is now recovering from his injury.
"Masaya ako na nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na madalaw si Eleazar Martinito, ang Grab driver na nasaktan sa isang insidenteng hindi ko malilimutan," he wrote in the caption.
"Taos pusong pasasalamat sa mga pulis na tumulong sa iyo at naging tulay para makilala kita."

Jake couldn't be more grateful seeing how Ely and his family are all better now following the police vehicle incident.
"Labis ang aking pasasalamat sa Panginoong Diyos na nasa maayos kang kalagayan kasama ang iyong pamilya. Hangad ko ang iyong patuloy na kaligtasan at nawa’y makabalik agad sa iyong trabaho. Nandito lang ako para sa’yo Ely!" he added.
It can be remembered that Jake made headlines in October after he sped off when his SUV allegedly bumped a police car.
This prompted the authorities to chase after him and fire shots at his car's tires, resulting in a stray bullet hitting Eleazar.

However, the actor was quick to defend himself saying that he only sped off since armed civilians with unmarked vehicles chased after him. It was only when he saw policemen in uniform flagging him down did he stop his car.
Jake also explained that he wasn't aware that his car had bumped another vehicle.
