I need help My dad had a seizure that he

Patient

Q: I need help.
My dad had a seizure that he never had before, he was perfectly healthy before today, he takes no meds whatsoever, He is 67 years old and overweight. In the morning today he had his typical breakfast and sat watching tv when his seizure began. He started making snore-like sounds and his eyes flipped. He bit his tounge, and started moving strangly, pushing away whoever trying to touch him. He continued being like this for almost an hour and then regained consciousness but with parts of his memory gone. He remembered us, acted normally and got up on his feet, but he forgot everything recent, forgot whatever happened in the past year or so. What can possibly be wrong with him? Im in a third world country and our hospitals/doctors arent trust worthy. Please help.
