Your friend is expiriencing tachycardia, which is a fancy name for a faster than normal heart rate. Just a high heart rate can be indicitive of several possible problems but without more information it's impossible to say what is causing it. Tachycardia can be dangerous because it means the heart is working harder than it should be. Your friend should make an appointment with a doctor for an evaluation.
