This is a well=known condition called "sleep paralysis", and it is a very frightening situation, but completely harmless. Very rarely it is associated with other sleep disorders, so it might be worthwhile to see a sleep doctor to see if there is anything else of significance, and also if there is not something that can be done for his symptoms.
