this is Dr. David
you should call an ambulance or taxi service and get him to a local A&E department at a hospital
he might need to be admitted into a hospital for evaluation
sounds like he needs an MRI scan of his lower back to check for pinched nerve in his lower back which can cause pain to radiate down into his legs.
you have to get him to the hospital or A&E department one way or another.
