Martin Pistorius was just like any 12-year-old boy and enjoyed growing up in South Africa. But, one day he felt ill and when he visited the doctor, they gave him a diagnosis he didn’t want to hear. He was diagnosed with a degenerative illness and soon fell into a coma and remained in a vegetative state for over a decade.
Doctors said he would die and even his mother told him, “I hope you die”. Because she just couldn’t bear to see her son in this state. The amazing thing was…he could hear and see everything. A man trapped in his own body for over a decade and unable to communicate. That is until a caregiver saw a glimmer in his eye. After some tests, they realized he could hear and see everyone around him and that gave him strength. As his mind grew stronger so did his body and he awoke from his coma.
Watch how this man survives over a decade trapped in his own body…
He never gave up and today he communicates via special software on his laptop and is happily married. Please share the incredible story of Martin who survived being trapped in a coma for over 10 years with your friends and family.
