News Flash! Lady did not treat her Diabetes

I was shopping for fishing equipment. A middle-aged lady fell to the floor near the coffee shop. One of the other customers yelled, “ call 911! “

The customer who was rescuing the lady who had fallen asked for a Blood Pressure Cuff. I said, “If she is diabetic, I have sugar.” The rescuer asked the lady. The fallen lady said that yes, she was diabetic and that she had not eaten at all today. They retrieved some orange juice from the coffee shop. Crisis averted.

As we were pulling away, the ambulance showed up.


Good catch with asking right away about diabetes. With so many of us walking around these days, that’s a high-percentage question to ask.
