Home And Away shock collapse! Justin’s life hangs in the balance - and the diagnosis is more than troubling

''Justin’s life is in danger.''

By Tamara Cullen
For weeks now, Justin hasn't felt like himself. He's forgetful, disorientated and careless.
And this week in Home And Away, he finds out why when he's rushed to the emergency room.
The terrifying scenes play out at the garage, where mechanic Justin (James Stewart) is restoring a car using toxic acid.
Despite feeling woozy, he soldiers on – until he collapses in a heap! As he falls, Justin knocks over the bottle of acid, allowing it to pool around him.

"Initially, Justin didn't think there was anything wrong. He was just tired and run down," James, 44, tells TV WEEK.
"He's been working on a car with a lot of rust and he has to use a special liquid that's hazardous – if you inhale it or get it on you, it can burn the skin.
"Justin is pouring some out of a big jerry can when he has a spasm and collapses. Needless to say, things aren't looking very good for him."

Thankfully, Alf (Ray Meagher) is passing by and comes across Justin on the concrete floor, suffering burns from the chemicals.
He quickly calls an ambulance, before letting Leah (Ada Nicodemou) and Tori (Penny McNamee) know of the situation.
At the hospital, Tori treats his burns and runs tests to get some answers.

"Justin's life is in danger at this moment because of the mystery," James says. "We don't know what caused him to collapse and how quickly his health is deteriorating."
What was thought to be a reaction to the chemicals turns out to be far worse.
