Yes: Could be injured by falling or coming into contact with machinery, could fracture a bone or vertebra, could in very rare situations aspirate food or liquid if occurred during a meal. But it is rare to suffocate during a seizure. Biggest risk is likely sudep, sudden death in sleep, but, most of these folks had inadequate medication.
