An employee who suffered from high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries was employed by defendant. After helping another workman unload six hundred sacks of cement weighing ninety-four pounds each in about forty minutes, the employee became ill and suffered a stroke which permanently paralyzed his left limbs. Held, compensation allowed under the Workmen's Compensation Act in spite of the fact that the employee was doing normal work of his employment in the usual way, and that he was at the time in an abnormal physical condition. Lumbermen's Mutual Casualty Co. v. Griggs, 190 Ga. 277, 9 S. E. (2d) 84 (1940).
