Woman wakes up from coma after 27 years

Woman wakes up from coma after 27 years

A woman stunned medics when she woke up from a 27-year coma and called the name of her son who she’d saved in a car crash. Munira Abdulla was driving after picking up her 4-year-old son Omar from school in Al Ain, UAE, when the car she was in was hit by a school bus in 1991. Abdulla, 32 then, suffered a traumatic brain injury while her son escaped relatively unscathed.

She promptly turned on CNN and took herself off of life support

This is really great news! First there's the recovery itself, totally miraculous. Then there's the fact that she went into coma protecting her son. Add to that the love the son had in protecting her and not giving up hope for nearly 30 years, and finally the miracle of a government actually caring for her for this whole time, using tax money for the well being of this family, resulting in a medical miracle. Best news all day

Waking up after 27 freaking years, that's mind-blowing, I can't begin to comprehend how that feels!

I can't imagine the feelings of this woman... Devestated to have missed my son's life, seeing him grow, being there for him, and yet of course profoundly grateful to know I saved him and to see him and my other loved ones again... What a lot of emotion to process.

So that's why they don't want women driving in that part of the world. Sorry I had to, in all seriousness though that is amazing.
