When he didn’t respond I instantly started to look up the emergency number for the EU. When that didn’t work I just had to hope the non-emergency would work, it had an option for talking to a real person, and I can’t tell you how quickly I clicked that button.”[/perfectpullquote]

The BBC reports that the two gamer friends had each other’s addresses even though they had never met in real life before. The police arrived at Jackson’s house and were met by his parents who had no idea what was going on. They ran upstairs and found Jackson disorientated.  This is not the first seizure Jackson has suffered but he is now seeking some immediate help for the situation.

Dia had our address but didn’t have any contact numbers, so it was amazing she managed to get help from so far away. I’ve spoken to her and expressed our thanks – she’s just glad she could help. Aidan is a lot better and hopefully everything is OK when he has his appointment at the hospital but he’s doing well.”[/perfectpullquote]
