FOTON spiker Dzi Gervacio suffered a knee injury after a bad fall in their match against Philips Gold in the Philippine Super Liga All Filipino Conference at Cuneta Astrodome on Saturday.

Gervacio told attending medics that she heard a pop in her knee as soon as she landed, raising fears that she may have suffered ligament damage.

The former Ateneo Lady Eagle was immediately rushed to the Makati Medical Center.

Former Ateneo teammate Fille Cainglet-Cayetano immediately rushed to Gervacio's side as medics prepare to take her to the hospital.

“Hindi ko alam ano nangyari pero nakita ko na lang dinadala na siya ng medics kaya tumakbo na ako (papunta sa kanya),” Cainglet-Cayetano told

Gervacio was part of the celebrated 'Fab Five' of the Blue Eagles with Alyssa Valdez, Cainglet-Cayetano, Gretchen Ho and Jem Ferrer.

Foton eventually lost the match, 18-25, 26-24, 21-25, 25-15, 13-15 - its second defeat in five outings.
