First aid for seizures

Seizures may be caused by many things such as head injuries, diabetes and heat stroke. You may see the persons eyes roll to the back of their head, then drop to the ground , call 911. DO NOT hold them , do not put anything in their mouth. Remove anything away from them that they may hurt themselves, put padding under their head when the seizure ends put them in the recovery position, talk to them until EMS arrives and take over.
