3-year-old Lenny-George's quick thinking saved the life of his diabetic father, who collapsed from hypoglycemia.
3-year-old Lenny-George Jones from the UK had to think on his feet when his father Mark collapsed on the kitchen floor, The Mirror reports.
Thankfully, the toddler was able to save his father from a diabetic coma after he fed his dad enough yogurt to get his sugar levels high enough for him to regain consciousness and take his glucose tablets.
Lenny-George couldn’t reach the yogurt on the fridge, so he dragged a little blue chair for him to stand on. As he also couldn’t reach the cutlery, the toddler fed his 34-year-old dad with a plastic knife from his toy kitchen.
“He saved his life,” Lenny-George’s mom Emma told Manchester Evening News. “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."
When Emma got home, her husband’s sugar levels were down to 1.1—the normal levels are 4-7.
“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.”
