BBC talks about an incident with an American of Thai descent, Opaque Kwapong that once sat in his apartment in new York and talked on FaceTime with her sister, Idumea Sapong living in Manchester (UK). Sapong says that her call woke the 58-year-old sister, whose face during a video call, "looked very strange".
Opokua told my sister that her speech is unclear and also complained of fatigue and heaviness when walking. Kwapong want to take aspirin, but my sister saw on the screen that she was not even able to lift a glass of water.
As a result, the Sapong decided to connect to their conversation a third sister, who worked as a doctor. A few seconds of video conferencing for the latter had enough to offer to finish the conversation and immediately call the ambulance service.
The doctors diagnosed Kwapong a blood clot in the area of the brain that impeded the circulation and led to a partial paralysis of the left side of the body. Then admitted the woman, if not for the conversation on FaceTime and not help the sisters, could all end for it much worse.
