UA Mindanao suffers accident in failed PGT Finals stunt

Bornok Mangosong, UA Mindanao motocross riders team leader crashed his bike after he failed to launch into a back flip from a high ramp.

Despite of the accident, PGT judges actress Angel Locsin, action star Robin Padilla, and comedian Vice Ganda still praised the Kidapawan City pride.

"Alam ko naman ang ipinaglalaban ninyo eh. Hindi niyo lang ginagawa iyan para makapagmayabang lang. Ginagawa niyo yan dahil mayroon kayong pangarap at gustong patunayan. May magandang dahilan ang Diyos kung bakit nangyari sa inyo 'yan," Vice Ganda commented.

"Hindi sila pumalpak. Sapagkat ipinakita po nila sa ating lahat kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng stunts. Ang stunts po talaga kasama ang mga ganoong pangyayari, at masasabi ko po nagawa nila ng tama sapagkat sa oras na nandodoon na iyong aksidente, pinakita mo na mayroon kang presence of mind," Padilla shared.

"Sapagkat kung binitawan mo iyong motor prematurely, malamang wala ka na ngayon. Pero kitang kita natin sa video, buong buo iyong isip, nasa timing ang bato mo ng motor pati ang landing mo, ang galing mo, pare!" he added.

Meanwhile, former ABS-CBN president Freddie M. Garcia expressed disappointment over the failed stunt.

"It's totally exciting. It's just unfortunate that you failed to do what you were supposed to do," he said.
