One of the most devastating things is falling into coma. It is devastating because such a person is not even assured of getting back to consciousness, it's a very big problem and even some people who fall into comatose die in the process. But miracles also happen and in this piece, we are going to have a look at some facts about an American man who stayed in coma for over 10 years and still managed to recover.
In 1984, Terry Wallis's pickup truck was thrown off a small bridge in stone county, Ark. The accident caused the lives of many people but Terry Wallis didn't die, he was however severely injured and was still alive when he got medical attention. Due to the injuries sustained Wallis fell into a comatose and after a couple of months, his coma stabilized into a "minimally conscious state", there was hope he would recover soon but this hope continued to fade away with each passing year of him still being in the coma.
It got to a point that his wife Sandi and daughter Amber were thrown into a confusing state as to whether they would ever see Terry Wallis alive, hale and hearty again. But on June 11, 2003, their expectations and hope weren't dashed, Terry Wallis suddenly regained consciousness, making him the only person to survive such a long coma though his record has been matched by another man. Since then he has been living with his family though quadriplegic, atleast he survived it and left a mind blowing record.
