Mexican singer Vicente Fernández was hospitalized after suffering a fall

Vicente Fernandez is in “serious but stable condition” in Guadalajara hospital

The medical team attending to him at a private hospital in Guadalajara has confirmed that Fernandez’s condition is “serious but stable,” and he is in intensive care after undergoing emergency surgery after the accident.

“The current condition of Don Vicente Fernandez is, without a doubt, serious but stable, as is the sequence of the trauma caused by the fall itself, which generated a rachimedullary traumatism at the level of the spinal column,” reads a medical statement.

Fernández is considered the most famous ranchera singer, known for his trademark charro outfit, wide sombrero and mariachi ensemble.

Fernández is among the world’s most decorated entertainers, earning multiple accolades including Grammys and Latin Grammys.

But he’s also collected a number of nicknames cementing his status as an icon to fans such as El Ídolo de México (Mexico’s idol) in the early 1980s and “El Rey de la Música Ranchera” (The King of Ranchera Music).

In regard to his health, a Facebook post from Monday night appears to be the latest mention, explaining that statements will be issued through his medical team.

Fernández is 81.
