On Tuesday, March 14, 2017, actor Jake Cuenca was rushed to the hospital.
According to his father, Jake regularly trains at a gym near the SM Mall of Asia Area.
"Si Jake kasi every morning, he trains for Ironman sa may MOA,” said his father, Juanto.
On Tuesday morning, Jake planned to train as usual but his day took a different turn when he got into a vehicular accident.
According to Jake's father,“Biglang nagpreno ang isang malaking truck and he did not have time to break, so tinamaan niya yung truck. Dumiretso siya sa ospital. Nasa emergency room siya, nasa trauma.”
There was apparently no way for Jake to get into an ambulance on time, so his driver decided to bring him to Medical City instead.
His father added the following in an interview with DZMM on Tuesday morning:
"Yung driver niya mismo [ang nagdala sa kanya sa ospital] because there were no ambulances on site. Sa Medical City, that's where he is now.”
“Meron siyang two broken bones on the hand. He had to have stitches in his chin. They are still continuing with the tests kung ano pa ang damage sa kanya.”
Towards the end of the interview, Jake's father assured the public that he is now conscious and safe from any real danger, although he is still in pain.
