You should be calling for an ambulance and you son should be heading towards an a hospital. Really it's impossible. Wish you all the best!!

It is a natural response of the body to fall down (faint) if there is a lack of oxygen in the brain. It does so to make the blood run to the head more easily.

Hi ChitChatNine,

You raise a good point. I was worried that the original poster hadn't
sought medical attention for his son. Eve :)

If this is a real comment, you should be calling for an ambulance
and you son should be heading towards an ER at a hospital.
Twenty-four minutes with " little oxygen". How do you define
little oxygen. You need professional help for your son immediately.
