Vandolph, the son of comedy king Dolphy and Alma Moreno, can be considered a star in his own right. He grew up before our very eyes, doing comedy like his dad and even doing drama.
In 2001, when local showbiz was mourning the loss of the likes of Nida Blanca and Maria Teresa Carlson, Vandolph himself came close to being a fatality.
On that fateful day of November 19, 2001, Vandolph was driving in Pangasinan along with then girlfriend Desiree "Ishi" Raquiza.
While driving an F150 pick-up, Vandolph, Ishi, his driver and bodyguard crashed into an Isuzu Elf Truck.
From Pangasinan, Vandolph was air lifted to Manila and brought to Makati Medical Center.
Unfortunately, Ishi passed away on December 4, 2001.
Meanwhile, Vandolph went through several operations to repair his damaged bones. He was also comatose. Dolphy and Zsa Zsa Padilla were tense as he underwent all these procedures.
Find out how Vandolph survived and coped with the trauma of the most unforgettable accident in his life with Ces Drilon, this Thursday (August 20) on I Survived, after Bandila on ABS-CBN.
