Andi Eigenmann accidentally ‘shot’ while taping series

Young actress Andi Eigenmann was hit by a blank bullet while taping an action scene for ABS-CBN television series “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin.”

The incident happened last week in Marikina City after co-star Martin del Rosario accidentally pulled the trigger of his firearm.

Del Rosario recalled that when he heard the shot, he was initially not aware where it came from. He said he immediately apologized to the actress, who accepted the apology as she was aware that it was pure accident,Eigenmann, who plays a soldier in the TV series, was rushed to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City by the production staff and actress Maja Salvador. She reportedly suffered a second-degree burn and is now resting at her Quezon City home.

Director Darnel Joy Villafor said Eigenmann and del Rosario will resume taping next week. He added that actors are aware of the risks involved when doing action sequence on the show and their safety is always top priority.
