BREAKING NEWS: COMEDY KING DOLPHY, DIED AT THE AGE OF 83 - JULY 10, 2012

The Comedy King is dead. Dolphy, or Rodolfo Vera Quizon Sr., passed away Tuesday at 8:40 pm, at the Makati Medical Center, thus ending one of the longest and most colorful lives and careers in Philippine show business history. He was 83 and about to turn 84 on July 25. This was confirmed by a close family member Tuesday evening, according to GMA News' State of the Nation. Dolphy died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He also suffered from kidney ailments. Dolphy was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit on Saturday, June 9, after complaining of difficulty in breathing. His potassium level had also dropped. The Philippines' Comedy King underwent several dialysis treatments while in the hospital. He also had at least two bouts of pneumonia, with the last one occurring only recently. In an earlier report GMA News' "24 Oras," a son of the actor-comedian, Ronnie Quizon, said his father was suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a condition which limits the amount of air that enters the lungs. "Simple phlegm can kill him. Kasi nga, nagbabara sa lungs niya. Basically that's what COPD does to you," he explained. Because of his age, Dolphy's immune system has weakened.
