Man Goes Into Diabetic Coma- Toddler Saves Him With Yogurt

In an amazing story out of the UK this week, we hear about a three-year-old toddler who saved his dad's life by force-feeding him chocolate dessert yogurt when he was unconscious on the kitchen floor.

34-year-old Mark Jones fell into a diabetic coma after his blood sugar levels plunged one evening.

Mark’s son Lenny-George sprang into action. The boy pulled out two Muller Crunch Corner yogurts from the fridge by climbing on a chair to reach the handle.

The precocious young man then went to his toy kitchen to get a plastic knife when he could not reach the drawer with the cutlery.

The resourceful boy managed to spoon the very sweet yogurt into his father's mouth, and his dad swallowed enough he returned to consciousness and took a couple of glucose tablets.

The boy’s mum Emma said she could not be prouder of her son and notes that things could have turned out quite differently.

She explains: “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?”

Her son turned to her and said: “I saved daddy.” Mark confirmed he was telling the truth.

She continued, “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.”
