A diabetic man, who feared he was about to go into a coma, was reportedly turned away when he tried to order a burger at local McDonald’s.
Matt Brown, a 38-year-old teacher had approached the McDonald’s drive-thru on foot after he began to feel ill while walking home from his mother’s house. “I decided to head for the McDonalds on my route to get my sugar level back safe,” Brown said. “I usually carry Lucozade for emergencies but had run out.”
Brown asked the server for a burger so he wouldn’t collapse from a hypoglycemic attack but the drive-thru staff reportedly refused to serve him because he wasn’t in a car. He says he begged the duty manager to at least phone an ambulance but was told: “It’s not my problem.”
According to Brown, he was “left slumped outside” for over an hour. “I just needed some help and goodwill,” Brown said.
