In late 2016, a 34-year-old policewoman in Argentina—in a coma after a car accident—gave birth. Four months later, Amelia Bannan has regained consciousness and has finally met her son, reports AFP.
During the first part of 2017, “she moved sometimes, made signs of waking up,” said her brother Cesar.
It was a very moving moment.”On November 1, Bannan and her colleagues—including the father of her child, also a police officer—were in an accident in their service vehicle. Bannan was gravely injured.
“Last Thursday, during Holy Week, we were in her room at the clinic, and we heard someone say ‘Yes.’ We approached her.
As she languished in a coma in a hospital in the city of Posadas, her pregnancy moved along as planned. Santino was born by cesarean section a few hours before Christmas, in perfect health.
Bannan’s sister Norma “took care of Santino. And every day at 6 pm, she brought the baby to Amelia,” said brother Cesar.
When Bannan finally regained consciousness last week, and her sister brought Santino to her, she at first thought the baby was her nephew. Then her family explained the happy news.
Bannan began to remember what happened to her. At first speaking in a confused manner, she eventually made herself understood, her brother said.
