“It’s just a crazy thing.
I’ve never experienced it before.
The paramedics said it was so scary,” he told ABC News Australia.”

I could feel the blood going to my brain and I couldn’t speak for two hours.
I was in shock.”
He tried to make it to the doctor, but they wouldn’t take him in.
Then, just before he died, the ambulance driver, who was part of a paramedic team, decided to take the patient to a local hospital.
He managed to talk to paramedics who treated him.
“They said I’m alright and they’re very glad they saved my life,” he said.
“The guy said he felt like he had been given a gift.”
A spokeswoman for Victoria Ambulance Service said the driver took the patient into a waiting ambulance.
She said the man’s medical history was not known and there was no risk to the public.
“We are deeply saddened by the death of this man and are working closely with his family to understand what happened and why,” the spokeswoman said.
