A man who had an accident and has been in a coma for 12 years has finally woken up. His mother has been with him during this time.
Wang Shuboa, from eastern China, suffered catastrophic injuries in the 2006 accident, which happened when he was 36 in Shouguang in eastern China. He was in a coma for over a decade and his mum Wei Mingying who was at his side all through was the first he saw when he awoke.
Wei Mingying, aged 75, spent all her savings on her son’s treatment and told Chinese media that she went for a month without eating. She is now £13,000 in debt after as a result of huge medical bills.
For years, she woke each day at 5am to wash, feed and tends to her unconscious son. His father died when he was young, meaning Wei was responsible for caring for him.
Although Wang is unable to speak, he has exchanged smiles with his mother and she is optimistic that he can make a recovery.
She told Beijing News: “I am just overjoyed. I hope he will make a full recovery. I will never give up on him.”
