Man in coma after being taken to hospital with epileptic seizure

A man had to be forcibly removed from his room by police after suffering a diabetic seizure. Itís alleged he suffered a broken hip, hand and nose and a punctured lung. His parents were then told that he had suffered from a methadone overdose and needed to undergo detox. His family claims that tests indicate no drugs in his body and they believe that someone at the hospital gave him medication to counteract the drugs they believed he had consumed. The man is now in a coma and there are conflicting reports as to whether he suffered a brain hemorrhage.
