The employee tapped the shoulder of a coworker and said the scaffolding looks good, then told the coworker that he didn't feel well and that his blood pressure felt high. The coworker told the employee that they could leave early and told him to sit down on a metal plate in the shade with some water.

The coworker called the emergency medical services and waved the other coworkers over.
