James Dalpiaz is a manager at a Michigan McDonald's and saved the day...and life...of a man who went into diabetic shock.

His wife Susan Causey asked for help over the intercom wanting an orange juice for her husband. She had picked up her husband from a senior center iwhen she noticed he could barely walk. Believing his sugar levels had dropped and that he could go into shock she rushed to the restaurant for the juice.

"He was just about ready to go into a coma," Causey said. "I could see myself having to call 911. That’s how low his sugar was."

The indoor section was closed, cars were lined up at the drive-thru, but when she reached the intercom, Causey said that she yelled that her husband was in diabetic shock and needed a large orange juice. Dalpiaz said:

"I ran. And I said, 'I got it. I got it. I got it, I know what to do, I'm pouring sugar in there. And they ...said, 'oh, she only asked for orange juice.' And I said, 'I know what I'm doing ... just trust me.'" Dalpiaz knew to add extra sugar because his aunt has diabetes. Causey thanked Dalpiaz calling him "my hero."

"I'm really humbled by all the responses I'm getting, because I'm kind of shy guy, so I feel like I don't deserve it, you know, I'm just doing what was right," Dalpiaz said
