“Kahapon nangyari ito, he was rushed sa hospital ng around 5 pm. He’s in a not-so-good condition. The doctor says it’s an aneurysm,” she added.

(This happened yesterday. He was rushed to the hospital around 5 p.m.)

Reyes said Rivera needs surgery, and they need to transfer him to a bigger hospital so neurosurgeons can see him.

She also said they are waiting for Rivera’s mother, Lorna, to come home to the Philippines to decide the next step for the lawyer.

“Kaya kami nag-agree i-intubate siya para at least to extend Bruce’s life at maantay niya si Mommy Lorna and Mommy Lorna will have to decide kung mag-undergo pa ng operation,” Reyes said.

(That’s why we agreed to intubate him so we could extend his life and wait for Mommy Lorna to arrive and have her decide if Bruce should still undergo an operation.)
