Every second counts

Just after I got home this evening, our neighbor called us up, asking for help to carry their caretaker outside of his room and be taken to the hospital. I went out immediately to see him: all pale, totally unconscious and he looked really bad. This guy looked like he either had a heart attack, or stroke, or bangungot. He was dying, and I could do nothing much. He's quite heavy and things gone worse when we could not easily get him out of his room which is at the second floor and uses a narrow spiral staircase.

He was taken to the nearest clinic. We don't know if he's fine now as of this writing. I'm hoping for the good news in a few more hours.
