After nearly 30 years in a coma, a woman miraculously regained consciousness in a hospital room in Germany recently.
The last thing Munira Abdulla remembered before sustaining her brain injury was trying to shield her four-year-old son, Omar Webair, with her body in the backseat of the car they were travelling in when it collided with a bus, Fox News noted.
When she opened her eyes 27 years later his face was the first thing she saw.
"I woke up to the sound of someone calling my name," Webair told the National of the day his mother came round. "It was her. She was calling my name. I was flying with joy. For years I have dreamt of this moment, and my name was the first word she said."
The incident that altered their lives forever took place in 1991. It was a school day but there were no buses to take Webair home so his mother, driven by her brother-in-law, came to fetch him. They could not anticipate what would come next.
"My mother was sitting with me in the back seat. When she saw the crash coming she hugged me to protect me from the blow," Webair said.
In the years that followed, Abdulla spent time between various hospitals but Webair never left her side. "I never gave up on her because I always had a feeling that one day she will wake up," he told The National. In 2018 she regained consciousness and is now learning to communicate and recites prayers with her son. Webair decided to come forth with their story in hope that it will bring families together
"All those years, the doctors told me she was a hopeless case and that there was no point of the treatment I was seeking for her, but whenever in doubt I put myself in her place and did whatever I could to improve her condition," he said. "I shared her story to tell people not to lose hope on their loved ones."
