OK, this is not at all my area of expertise - there are several possibilities here. He's probably going to be all right, but it is essential that he be taken to see a good local paediatrician soon for a proper examination and assessment. I'd guess he's not likely to suffer significant brain damage if someone is always close enough to see this and get him started again, and because it occurs during crying when he will have been breathing more deeply than usual as part of crying.
