A 50-year-old Arab man slipped into diabetic coma in Dubai after his wife locked him up in bathroom to “teach him a lesson” for remarrying.
He made a distress call to the Dubai Unified Ambulance telling them that he was on the verge of unconsciousness.
When paramedics reached his house, his wife tried to convince them to not help her husband as she “wanted to teach him a lesson” and prevent him from visiting his second wife.
The man, however, did not press charges after the Dubai Police helped him settle the dispute amicably with his wife.
He told the police that he called the ambulance to save his life and not for the police to take action against his wife, Khaleej Times reported.
The wife apologised later and said she did not mean to harm him.
A diabetic coma is a life-threatening complication that causes unconsciousness.
Once early symptoms of a diabetic coma are noticed, treatment typically requires hospitalisation with intravenous fluids such as potassium and insulin. The diabetic coma can lead to death if left untreated.
