34-year-old Mark Jones, got a surprise earlier this month, when his son, Lenny-George came to his rescue and saved his life by feeding him yogurt.
On Nov. 13, Jones collapsed while he was watching television with his 3-year-old son. Jones has Type 1 diabetes, which requires him to take insulin four times a day.
In response to his father’s body slump, the toddler acted swiftly and saved his papa’s life, by marching to the fridge and grabbing Muller Crunch Corner yogurt.

To get the yogurt, the Manchester, England based little one used his special seat, a blue chair, to grab two yogurts to help his Type 1 diabetic father.
Type 1 diabetes is a condition that’s typically diagnosed in children and young adults, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
It also means that the body does not produce insulin and this is a hormone needed to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body, the website said.

The young boy was unable to reach the silverware drawer, and the small chair was not high enough to help give him the boost needed, so he grabbed a knife from his toy kitchen.
He spooned the yogurt with the utensil into his father’s mouth, so he could get enough energy, to move.
Once Jones levels came back up, the father of one was able to get up and take a glucose tablet, which is described as a chewable simple sugar that can aide in quickly raising the glucose levels for diabetics, Liftable reported.
When the mother of the house returned, Emma, she noticed instantly that her husband “did not look well.” And her son, turned to her and immediately said, “I saved daddy.”
On the spot, the father confirmed the story and the mother went on to to explain the dire place her husband was in.
Saying, his glucose level was at 1.1 when she arrived at the house. Leaving worry in her heart, because the normal range for her husband is between 4 and 7.
According to Emma, neither herself or husband, ever properly explained to their son about Mark’s condition or how to handle a life threatening occurrence.
But “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 [yogurt].”
“He saved his life,” said Emma. “It could have 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.”
