My childhood & college buddy died in the pool swimming alongside me as he suffered a seizure. We didn't know it at that time. His whole body was jerking and we thought he was playing a prank. He inhaled water. After some time he lay still.
Again we thought it was a prank. But when after a considerable time he didn't move or lift his head to breathe, we got alarmed and turned him over. It was too late by then. Later we came to know that he was epileptic but suffered seizures rarely.

for an auto driver, if he turns out to have epilepsy, he might not have many other methods of livelihood to turn to, so he will continue to risk it to feed himself/his family.
Yes, I agree its a risk, and that you shouldn't do it. But put yourself in his shoes. Would you do ?
