Legendary Mexican singer Vicente Fernandez is in critical condition after taking a fall at his ranch. It has been said that the 81-year-old had to undergo surgery at a hospital in the Mexican city of Guadalajara, where is currently on a ventilator.

Fernandez’s son Vicente Jr said his father damaged his cervical vertebrae and has been put on sedation. A Facebook post from the singer's account written in Spanish and translated into English noted, “The media are asked for their full understanding, so that they please allow free access to the hospital to all members of the Fernández Abarca family; This is due to the healthy distance and not putting the health of Don Vicente Fernández at risk in these critical moments that he is going through, so no interview will be granted by any family member, so that please do not insist on it.”
