DOLE is now investigating the accident that happened to Eddie Garcia
Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is now investigating the accident that happened to veteran actor Eddie Garcia which eventually led to his death.
For several days, Tito was unconscious in the hospital after he tripped on a cable wire while taping for Kapuso teleserye Rosang Agimat.
On June 20, he passed away and the entertainment industry lost a legendary actor and director.
Amid this issue, netizens, as well as several celebrities, are questioning why there was no medical personnel on the set. Some people are even blaming the Kapuso network for this.
Based on the report from Bombo Radyo, the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC) under DOLE is now investigating the incident.
DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that OSHC started to investigate if GMA 7 really committed negligence on this matter.
The investigation will also reveal if the TV network is implementing the safety and health plan.
Meanwhile, the Federation of Free Workers (FFW) is hoping that the truth will come out and certain people should be held liable, based on the report.
In line with this, several netizens expressed their reactions. Here are some of the comments, based on the article from Bandera.
“Dapat lang kahit na sabihing aksidente nangyari pero may pananagutan pa rin sila. Justice for Manoy.”
“Dapat talaga may managot 3yrs sya sa Ang Probinsyano hindi masasabing aksidente yan dahil sa edad nyang yan dapat iniingatan na ang pagbibigay ng role sa kanya at dahil batikang aktor alam nyong tatatanggapin nya gaano man kadelikado.”
“Sana man lang iningatan nyo sya namatay na lang sana sa katandaan. Sa pagbilad nyo palang sa kanya sa katirikan ng araw may kapabayaan na.”
