Mason County boy saves mother's life

RECTORVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 4-year-old Mason County boy is being credited with saving the life of his mother.

Twenty-eight-year-old Shannon Jones says she was cleaning her Rectorville home recently when she suffered a low blood sugar spell caused by type I diabetes.

Low blood sugar can develop quickly in people with diabetes who are taking insulin and, in severe cases, can cause seizures and unconsciousness.

Jones said while she was unconscious her son, Bradley, found her and tried to wake her.

When he couldn't, she said he went to his great-grandmother's house, who lives next door, and then to his uncle's garage.

Jones said Bradley brought the family members back to the house, where they called an ambulance to take her to the hospital.
