Batangas gubernatorial candidate Armand Sanchez was rushed to the hospital Monday after suffering from heatstroke while campaigning, but his lawyer said his client’s condition was not critical.
In a radio interview, lawyer Ferdinand Topacio said Sanchez was resting and his doctor would release a medical bulletin soon.
“Ang latest na balita ko na-heatstroke po kanina shortly before lunch. Nangangampanya at medyo nahilo so dinala sa hospital, pinagpapahinga po roon (From what I heard Sanchez suffered from a heatstroke shortly before lunch and was rushed to the hospital),” Topacio said over radio dzMM.
A separate radio dzMM report said Sanchez was confined at the Mary Mediatrix Medical Center in Lipa City.
Sanchez’s logistics officer Cesar Reyes refused to confirm the news, but told GMANews.TV that they would release an official statement on Sanchez’s health condition.
