Broadcaster Karen Davila is thankful his son, David, who has been diagnosed with autism, is well now after experiencing a full-blown seizure. 

Davila recalled she and her husband just arrived from an overnight trip to Sorsogon recently when David — who welcomed them at the lobby –started having a convulsion.

Though seizures can be common for kids with autism, Davila noted their son never really had them.

“He has only had one scary episode when he was 7 yrs old,” she said. 

Davila thanked first responders who assisted them during the ordeal, describing them as “fast thinkers” and “equipped.”

Davila related how they knew exactly what to do to make sure her son would stay alive.

“And all I did was shout the name of our Lord Jesus Christ non-stop, asking HIM to heal & save David.”

David is now “okay” and undergoing a 24-hour video EEG, which Davila said will help monitor brain movement. 

Davila aims to prevent a similar scenario from happening again.
