Man rushed to emergency

An unidentified man was rushed to the Tupua Tamasese Meaole National Hospital on Tuesday after he suffered a form of medical attack while sitting in front of a shop.

The man, whom eye witnesses identified as someone who allegedly sits in front of the Maxkar shop in town everyday, allegedly has a history of suffering from such attacks.

A member of the public, who identified himself as Timothy Masoe and sells cans of drinks for a living, said he saw the man experiencing an attack.

This compelled staff in the Maxkar store to contact the Fire and Emergency Services Authority to rush him to the national hospital’s emergency. 

“We are not sure what his sickness is, but we hope it’s nothing serious,” Mr Masoe said.

Emergency staff, who were at the scene after the phone call to alert them was made, did not comment as they rushed the victim to the hospital.
