Child saves Diabetic Mother and Herself

Saw this story on the news this evening. Such a good story. Makes me think that every child of a diabetic must know what to do! This isn't the first story like this I've heard of but just makes me think...

This is a well written article and much better than this article in Shawnmaries forum post http://www.tudiabetes.org/forum/topics/i-know-it-s-only-a-yahoo-art... Which is full of mis-information. Thanks MandiG for posting this and thanks Shawnmarie for bringing the other so-called news story to light.

It is absolutely incredible that these two stories are about the same event. This reporter clearly has a clue and provided so many important details that the other story left out and/or got completely wrong. I only wish the family kept glucose tablets at the ready rather than a candy bar. Quickness counts in those situations!
