Toddler Stops Dad Falling Into A Diabetic Coma By Force Feeding Him Yoghurt

A three-year-old boy saved his diabetic father from falling into a coma by force feeding him yoghurt.

Upon seeing his dad unconscious on the kitchen floor, Lenny-George Jones acted quickly by getting two Muller Corners from the fridge with the help of his own little chair.

When he failed to reach the proper cutlery, Lenny dashed to his toy kitchen and gathered his plastic knife which he used as a spoon substitute.

His dad, Mark, 34, eventually came around so he could then take his glucose tablets.

Mum Emma, 31, was extremely proud when she heard what her maverick toddler had done.

"He saved his life," she told the 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.

"Mark had collapsed and woken up on the kitchen floor after he had a hypo and Lenny was feeding him yoghurt that he'd managed to get from the fridge."


Curiously, Lenny had never been told about his dad's condition, nor had he been told how to deal with an episode.

She 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 yoghurt.

"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!"
