No reason for him to be more considerate of his married sister than he is of you. Maybe he feels ashamed of the situation he has got himself into, and hestitates to let his family know ? Have you tried telling him that his family would want to know and to at least be allowed the choice of helping, which he is denying to them.
I can understand that you might think of calling them anyway. How would he react if you explained and urged him to call them himself "before I have to call them with worse news". ?
