MANILA - Cornelia Lee, a talent coordinator more popularly known as Tita Angge, was rushed to the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan Saturday evening due to chest pains, according to actress Sylvia Sanchez.
Speaking with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe, Sanchez said Lee was watching a movie with her niece and secretary when she suddenly complained of chest pains and started frothing at the mouth.
"Lumalaban si Tita Angge kasi --actually dumating siya dito sa ospital na dead on arrival tapos ni-revive siya dito. After 15 minutes ay bumalik iyong pulso niya, but still very critical siya. And for the next two hours kaya kailangan talaga bantayan siya," Sanchez said.
Sanchez then asked for prayers for Lee. "Matigas na matigas siya dito dumating pero ngayon lumambot na, nagkakulay na kaya kailangan talaga namin ang dasal ninyong lahat," she added.
The unfortunate news was also shared at the necrological service held for the late director Wenn Deramas at the Dolphy Theater inside the ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City, which was attended by several celebrities.
Among those spotted were Desiree del Valle, Nikki Valdez, DJ Durano, Jane Oineza, Sunshine Cruz, Pen Medina, Malou de Guzman, and Maricel Soriano.
ABS-CBN executives Charo Santos-Concio, Star Cinema Managing Director Malou Santos, Olivia Lamasan, talent manager June Rufino, and former ABS-CBN president Freddie Garcia were also at the event.
