According to Karen, she was able to catch David before he fell to the floor from the treadmill.

Their doctor advised them to make him lie down on the side to prevent him from biting his tongue.

The news anchor shared that all she could do at that moment was to pray to God and to trust that He is in control.

This was also how she reacted back in September 2020 when David, who has autism, had an epileptic seizure at the lobby of the condominium they reside in.

“Si David 'yung anak ko na diagnosed in the autism spectrum. And si David, every morning po, tumatakbo siya sa treadmill. And kaninang umaga, noong tumatakbo siya sa treadmill, bigla ko na lang nakita na nagkakaroon siya ng epileptic seizure.
"Tumatakbo po siya ng 3 kilometers, biglang naninigas ang katawan niya at hindi niya ma-control ang kanyang katawan. So nakita ko siya and I knew that he was having a seizure. And right away, pahulog na 'yung anak ko, sinalo ko siya.

“Tinawag ko po 'yung asawa ko and ang mga kasama namin sa bahay. Tapos 'yung tinuro po ng doktor, ihiga ang taong nagkaka-seizure nang patagilid para di po makagat ang dila. Actually nakagat nga niya nang konti 'yung kanyang dila kasi may dugo, pero 'di niya naputol or walang ganon. My husband was there, 'yung asawa ko was making sure that David breathed properly.
"Pero all I could say, once again, when David was on the floor and having a seizure... All I was saying again, which I said the first time, is 'Jesus, heal my son.’ Iyon lang ang nagawa ko, and it's the same story I had in September 2020, the first seizure that my son experienced doon sa lobby ng aming condo," Karen shared.
