Man Wakes Up From Coma After More Than A Decade

Martin, Pistorius who is now 47 years old has been ‘locked’ in his body in a coma since he was just 12 years old.

 
During this time he was still able to listen see and understand what was going on around him.
 
He later described his experiences: “I was able to hear, see and understand everything around me but I had absolutely no power or control over anything.”
 
“For me, that feeling of complete and utter powerlessness is probably the worst feeling I have ever experienced, and I hope I never have to experience it again. It is like you don’t exist, every single thing in your life is decided by someone else.”
