Former first lady and Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos assured the public Tuesday that she was just fine, thank you.

“Former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos would like to assure the public that she is in stable condition now after she met a small accident at the House of Representatives,” her chief-of-staff Filadelfo Diaz III said in a statement.

The accident happened as the 84-year-old lawmaker was making her way out of the session hall Monday after the elections for the Speaker of the House, which Fourth District Quezon City Rep. Sonny Belmonte eventually won.  

According to Diaz, Marcos’ right foot slipped, causing her to lose her balance and hit her left knee on the floor. 

Despite Marcos being rushed to the hospital, Diaz said there was nothing to worry about.

“Based on initial check-up conducted by the House of Representatives medical team, it is only a minor injury and there is no reason to worry. For her complete safety, she was advised to immediately undergo an X-ray scan and have her foot fully checked in the hospital,” he added. —KG, GMA News
