Don't give him any cold drinks but do give hot coffee, place him in a lying position, lowering his head and elevating his feet, massage him and place a hot water bag to his feet.Also give him half a teaspoonful of "aromatic spirits of ammonia" in water.
Some people who work in closed hot places will sweat excessively and suffer attacks of cramps in the muscles of the legs and abdomen.
These cases need salt.Give them a good pinch of salt in water every minutes.Keep them warm in airy room, not in a cold room. If people working overheated places take a pinch of salt every hour and drink plenty of water, they will prevent such attacks.
