I met my sister yesterday.
She said that her husband's father is in a hospital.
He is old but was very healthy and had a big appetite.
He had lived alone and done housework by himself.
However, he had to get taken away in an ambulance due to what happened in his house last month.
He became unwell suddenly in his bathroom and wasn't able to move.
How hard it must have been for him to handle by himself!
Fortunately, a small park is next to his house and he was able to shout for help toward the park.
Someone who was in the park heard his voice and called an ambulance immediately.
I hate to even think of how serious things would have been without people who came to the park.
年寄が一人で暮らすリスク
昨日、姉に会った。
姉は旦那さんの父親が入院していると言った。
彼は年を取っているが、健康で食欲旺盛だった。
彼は一人暮らしをしていて、家事を自分でやっていた。
しかし、先月、家の中で起こったことで救急車を呼ばねばならなくなった。
トイレで急に具合が悪くなり、動けなくなったのだ。
一人でそれに対処することはどんなに大変だったろう!
幸いにも彼の家の隣に小さな公園があり、彼は助けを呼ぶことができた。
その公園にいた人が彼の声を聞き、すぐに救急車を呼んでくれた。
公園に誰も来なかったら、どんなに大変な事態になったかと思うとぞっとする。
