Ely Buendia discharged from hospital

Popular singer Ely Buendia who suffered heart attack during the Eraserheads’ reunion concert last week has been discharged from the Philippine Heart Center, a television report said Friday.

The TV report, aired over GMA News’ 24 Oras, said the information was relayed by Buendia’s manager Day Cabuhat.

According to Cabuhat, Buendia has recovered after undergoing his third angioplasty to clear his blocked arteries.

But Buendia needs to take a rest, the report said.

Cabuhat said Buendia expressed his gratitude to those who prayed, visited and supported him.

On August 30, the band’s much awaited concert reunion was cut short following Buendia’s heart attack.

Buendia was rushed to the Makati Medical Center and his former band mates, accompanied by his sister Lally, broke the sad news to thousands of fans who attended the concert.

Organizers said fans understood the reasons for the abrupt end of the concert, but they requested for a follow-up reunion concert.

On Sunday, Buendia was transferred to the Philippine Heart Center.

In 2007, the singer also suffered a heart attack while his new band Pupil was performing in Laguna. He underwent two angioplasty procedures at the PHC. – Fidel Jimenez, GMANews.TV
