Еще will just have a look whether everything is alright.» SOT, Dr. Jim Yong Kim, World Bank President (English): «Lay him down.» SOT, Susanne Wille, Swiss journalist and chair of panel discussion (English): «Doctor Kim is a doctor. So, thank you for helping.» SOT, Dr. Jim Yong Kim, World Bank President (English): «Lay him down.» SOT, Susanne Wille, Swiss journalist and chair of panel discussion (English): «Could someone call a doctor please? Oh yeah, but still, someone with the tools. Excuse, for whoever's watching us on television, someone got sick in the audience and we have to make sure that this person gets help. There is no use in talking about social inequality if someone really needs help. Excuse me about that. I don't know maybe it's a little bit difficult for us to continue discussing. Do you agree or? Yes, I think we'll. Maybe, you know, just to make use of time, we can just show a video to the audience in Switzerland, because I think it's a question of privacy too. Lots of my panel talked about education, we've raised a few points, but maybe we show a short video summing up the situation and hope meantime [sic] our member from the audience gets the help that that person really needs. Thank you.» Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis fell ill during a debate about social inequality at the World Economic Forum 2018 in Davos on Tuesday. Host Susanne Wille was forced to interrupt the broadcast to call for medical attention, stopping Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos mid-sentence. Sixty-two-year-old Dastis was treated by a doctor in the audience and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, a physician by training. The Spanish Foreign Minister had been attending a panel discussion called 'The 21st-Century Social Compact', with the Spanish King Felipe VI. According to Spanish media, Dastis was still able to accompany the King to a meeting later that afternoon with French President Emmanuel Macron.
