A policewoman from Argentina named Amelia Bannan had a car accident last year. Her skull was fractured which caused blood clotting in her brain, and worse, she was five months pregnant at the time.
Amelia went into a coma but she still managed to give birth to baby Santino after a month, on Christmas Eve, while she was still in coma. Doctors were losing hope as she wasn’t showing any signs of improvements.
Amelia’s coma lasted for five months it was until baby Santino was placed near her face. The baby, who was already three months old, was taken care of by relatives. During one visit, they put baby Santino near her and they were surprised when Amelia started moving and embraced him.
“That day we heard there in the silence, while we were giving Santino the bottle, we heard a low voice, we heard ‘yes, yes’,” Cesar, Amelia’s brother, told TV news channel NTN24.
“To corroborate if she was listening to me, I told her, ‘Amelia, if you understand me, stick out your tongue’. And she stuck out her tongue. It was a total revolution. Norma lay on Amelia’s body, embraced her, and wept tears of joy. It revolutionized our hearts.”
Amelia is currently improving quickly, according to the physiotherapist who supervises his rehabilitation, Roberto Gisin.
“She keeps surprising us,” neurosurgeon Marcelo Ferreira said.
“We hope that at some point, we will be able to see her walking holding her son’s hand,” he added.
