Hello and welcome.
That is certainly a scary experience, and I am sorry that happened to your SIL and family.
My best advice would be for him to check in with his PCP on. Monday, unless he has any more symptoms, in which case he should go to emergency immediately. His PCP may choose to send him to a cardio specialist, just to rule out anything going on there.
I also wonder if they ruled out gastritis which can be extemely painful and mimic cardio trouble? Either way, he should plan to be seen on Monday to be safe;)
I hope that he will be fine, and if it does turn out to be anxiety, send him our way.
