In the comments, one user said: "Please let's not play with some issues. From the way the man tumbled down as he stood I can clearly say he was suffering from exhaustion or a health condition or even both. He could have died. Thanks be to God that he is still alive. We all need to be health conscious."

"This is what happens when you mainly depend on politics for the upkeep of you and your family. U don't have the guts, but still go in for it," another user wrote.
