TERRAFIRMA forward Roider Cabrera was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed in the dugout not long after the Dyip won over Barangay Ginebra in the second leg of the PBA 3x3 tournament.
According to reports, the Dyip had just finished their postgame huddle after they defeated Brgy. Ginebra, 19-17, when the 30-year-old sweet-shooting big man suddenly lost consciousness.
He was immediately attended to by medical personnel and brought to the hospital.
Terrafirma governor Bobby Rosales relayed that Cabrera is under observation for the next 48 hours, and they are hopeful that the veteran forward will pull through.
“The whole Terrafirma Dyip family is full of hope that things will turn out fine for Terrafirma 3x3 player Roider Cabrera. He is now in the hospital, getting the best medical treatment and care possible. Terrafirma Dyip management is completely behind his full recovery,” said Rosales in a statement.
“Medical bulletins are given directly to his immediate family and we give them the respect and the discretion to whatever they want or may not want to share to the public. We would also like to thank from our hearts the first responders on the scene who took care of Roider, the medical workers and the whole PBA and PBA 3x3 family. Let us continue to include Roider and his family in our prayers. Maraming salamat po,” added Rosales.
The development was a bitter moment for Terrafirma, which had made it to the top of Pool B with a perfect 2-0 win-loss record. Cabrera was particularly impactful in their victory versus Ginebra as he scored 11 points, including the game-winner.
