Quick-Thinking Toddler, 3, Heroically Saves His Father's Life After He Fell Into a Diabetic Coma
A quick thinking toddler saved his fathers life by feeding him after he had slipped into a diabetic coma.
34 years old Mark Jones has fallen into a come after his blood sugar levels dropped unexpectedly from the usual 4-7 to just 1.1 when his quick thinking son saved the day.
3 year old Lenny-George had never been told what to do in such a situation, but must have observed his mother as this situation had happened in the house before. He managed to get two yogurts from the fridge after standing on a chair to reach the handle, he then used one his toy plastic spoons to feed the yogurt to his father after not being able to reach the cutlery drawer.
Lenny-George's Mother, Emma said 'He saved his life. Mark is a type 1 diabetic and has to take insulin four times a day, It was a Sunday night, I needed to nip to my mum’s, which is literally two minutes around the corner by car, and I left them watching CBeebies together. 'I’d been out for about 30 minutes and when I got back they were lying on the sofa. Mark didn’t look well, so I said, "what’s going on here? Lenny just turned to me and said "I saved daddy", and Mark said it was true, he had. 'It could’ve been a completely different scenario if he’d been in bed or Lenny hadn’t done what he did. He could’ve ended up in a diabetic coma.'
Diabetics are at risk of falling into a coma if their blood sugar levels either become too high or too low, and if they are left in a diabetic coma for too long without treatment, the results can be fatal. Most of the time people have a warning that something is wrong, but sometimes it can happen unexpectedly.
The most amazing part of this story is that the 3-year old had never been instructed on what to do in this situation. Mrs Jones said 'Lenny must have seen Mark unwell in the past and watched me go to the fridge to get him food. 'If there’s no Mars bars in the cupboard I do tend to get him a yogurt.' 'He’s such a thoughtful and kind little boy. His older brother Oliver, who’s eight, has profound learning difficulties and he’s great with him. 'But he does have a mischievous side, a typical little boy running around at 100mph and never listening to his mum which is why it’s so much more amazing what he’s done!'
