Hello, it sounds like the starter solenoid is stuck not allowing the starter motor to turn. The only thing you can do is try to hit the starter solenoid with a hammer to loosen it up and see if it will turn over. Do you think he'd have the ability to do this there? If not I'm afraid he'll have to get it towed.
