[IP] Third Watch last night - diabetes

Did anyone see the episode of Third watch last night?  It had a 12 year old 
boy with Diabetes, who went missing.  His mom kept stressing he never takes 
off afterschool cause he has Diabetes and he knows he can't miss a meal or 
his meds or he'll get really sick.  They found him 3-4 four hours later 
stuck in a air shaft off the top of a building.  He was semi-unconsious and 
by the time they got to him( still in the air shaft) they went to give him 
some Glucagon(didn't say what it was though) and he started seizing.  He 
survived. Many times the mom and parmedics REALLY stressed the need to find 
him ASAP because he has diabetes and needs medication/food.  It also 
mentioned a few times that he wears a bracelet thing( at first I thought 
they meant a medic alert), and at the very end showed a quick glimpse of 
what I assume is a "tv" glucowatch.
