Seizures can cause temporary lack of oxygen to the brain
, which is why anyone watching a seizure
is supposed to note onset, whether or not the
person lost consciousness, breathing (did it stop), and more. Someone in charge of other people should be versed in general medical care, say CPR, s/s of stroke (CVA), s/s heart attack (MI), seizure protocol, etc. Any idiot should know that causing harm to someone isn't helping them.
