When His Dad Collapsed, This Little Boy Saved His Life By Feeding Him Yogurt

NOVEMBER 25, 2016  —  By Corinne Sanders

If my mom had a serious medical condition, I highly doubt that I would have been able to save her life as a little girl.

Most people wouldn't expect young children to know how to react to their parents falling seriously ill, but that definitely didn't stop one little boy from bringing his dad out of a diabetic coma.

When three-year-old Lenny-George from Droylsden, England, saw that his dad, Mark Jones, lost consciousness, he quickly sprang into action. Though nobody explained to him that his dad, a type one diabetic, needs food if his blood sugar becomes too low, he somehow knew exactly what to do.

When Mark's wife, Emma, left the house to visit her mother, his blood glucose levels dropped dangerously low and he became hypoglycemic. He collapsed on the kitchen floor.

Things could have ended very badly for him, but luckily, Lenny-George ran to the refrigerator. He climbed onto a chair, pulled open the door, and quickly grabbed two yogurt containers.

He then used a plastic knife from his toy kitchen to force-feed his dad until he regained consciousness and could take his glucose tablets.

Emma told Daily Mail that when she came home about 30 minutes later, "Lenny just turned to me and said 'I saved Daddy,' and Mark said it was true, he had." She believes that her son knew how to react because he's watched her bring Mark food whenever his blood glucose levels get too low.

If left in the diabetic coma, Mark could have died. But thanks to this brave little hero, he'll live to see another day.
