The first aiders are covering a local university's students union nightclub style event that happens each week. They have been called to a male who is reported as unresponsive. On arrival, they will find a man lying to one side against a wall apparently not moving. However, when the first aiders start speaking to him will suddenly jump up and start being very loud. The man's sister is also present and is very worried about him. The actions of the man seem unpredictable. The initial presentation will mimic something similar to being drunk (particularly as the man is intoxicated) but he is actually also having a stroke. The patient's sister is present and will be very worried and totally sure that he isn't usually this bad and that something else must be wrong.
