A South African man who had been in a coma for seven years was 'woken up' after being given a sleeping pill.
Ayanda Nqinana, from Johannseburg, was left with severe brain injuries after his car crashed along an Eastern Cape road in 2005.
His doctors said the father-of-one would most likely never recover.
But his wife Nomfundo recently read a newspaper article about other long-term coma patients who had woken up after being fed sleeping pill Stilnox.
She insisted her husband be given the tablets and, just five days later, Mr Nqinana was awake and able to talk.
He even recognised relatives, including his son Ayavuya, and could recall conversations from before his crash.
