Baldivino, who is often recognized for being the very first winner of Pilipinas Got Talent, passed away during the early morning hours of Dec. 9, 2022. The singer, who was only 29 years old, died at 4:00 a.m. “after being comatose for five days,” according to an Instagram post written by Jerry Telan. Telan is the former handler of Jovit in Star Magic.

In the post, Telan cited information provided on behalf of Baldivino's parents and his fiancé, Camille Ann Miguel. Apparently, Baldivino was “recuperating for a week with hypertension maintenance medicines” and advised not to sing. He was invited by “a family friend from Batangas City” to perform. Telan wrote “knowing “Bundoy” (Jovit), he gave in to clamor of the crowd.”

By the third song, Baldivino was “gasping for breath.” Telan cites that after an hour of resting, “his face was deformed with flowing salivas.” The musician was then rushed to the ER at Jesus of Nazareth Hospital on Dec. 3, 2022, and a CT scan revealed that he had “a blood clot on the brain (sign of aneurysm).”

Although medical professionals were able to suction some of the blood, Baldivino remained in a comatose state for the next five days. Sadly, he didn't recover and passed away.

What is an aneurysm?

An aneurysm is a bulge that forms in an artery wall, usually in weaker areas. If an aneurysm forms and is left untreated, it can rupture, and cause internal bleeding. This can sometimes lead to a blood clot forming, which may “block the flow of blood in your artery,” the Cleveland Clinic explains.

Although some recover from aneurysms, if they rupture, they’re likely to be fatal.
