SICKNESS. By sickness is understood any affection of the body which deprives it temporarily of the power to fulfill its usual functions.

When a process has been issued against an individual for his arrest, the sheriff or other officer is authorized, after he has arrested him, if he be so dangerously sick, that to remove him would endanger his life or health, to let him remain where he found him, and to return the facts at large, or simply languidus.
