However, statistically speaking, a large percentage of these incidents tend to occur during those few times when the person is at home alone. To make things even more challenging, in most instances, the person is left in a position in which they have no way to reach a phone or some other way to summon help. Being left in this situation for an extended period can only make things worse and could lead to death.
