What to do if you see someone having a seizure?

Ask any nearby person to call the emergency numbers:
  • 5100- 5120- 5140
  • 079 909 5406
  • 079 6600 911
  1. Roll the person on his or her side to prevent choking on any fluids or vomit.
  2. Cushion the persons head.
  3. Loosen any tight clothing around the neck.
  4. Keep the persons airway open.
  5. If necessary, grip the persons jaw gently and tilt his or her head back.
  6. Do not restrict the person from moving unless he or she is in danger.
