You definitely saved a life. Brain damage first and then death. And somewhat risky for you approaching at night like that. You are a good person.

My wife is type 1 diabetic and has done this many times. Most the time, just some juice or sugar can get her blood sugar up, but sometimes it takes a glucose shot to get her up and going. Diabetes is nothing to play around with and can wrong very quickly. Seeing that this guy was alone and not able to eat or drink, things could have gotten dire if no one intervened. Good looking out and stepping up to help.

Good job, that guy would have been dead by the next morning!
I always made a habit to check "drunk drivers" blood glucose when we responded to an MVA, this saves the arresting officer, the driver, and myself and crew, most of the time they are actually drunk but I have had a few that were diabetic with low blood sugar!

If you ain't paranoid you ain't paying attention
