See Obama at bottom and what I said here, just yesterdayThis is the shit that happens when we reject worthy and necessary things (and people) for no other reason than being haters trying to be petty and contrary—and it blows up in our face yet we’re to embarrassed to demand a recount…Lesson: stop trying to be petty and hurting worthy people suggesting and doing genius and necessary things.

Student, 22, who was left in a coma after a horror car crash was saved when she wiggled her toe moments before doctors were about to turn off her life-support machine

Collect photo of Sam Hemming while in critical care in July 2016. 29 September 2016. A student left in a coma following a horror car crash has been dubbed a "walking miracle" after she wiggled her TOE moments before doctors were about to turn off her life-support machine. See NTI story NTIMIRACLE. Law graduate Sam Hemming, 22, suffered horrific head injuries when the car she was travelling in flipped over on a motorway. She was airlifted to hospital where surgeons operated on her for six hours before placing her in a chemically-induced coma. After 19 days doctors advised her devastated parents to switch off her life-support machine after she was confirmed brain dead and had no hope of recovery. A disturbing picture of Sam in her hospital bed was taken by mum Carol, 44, as she made a heart-breaking farewell to her daughter. But incredibly, moments before doctors prepared to switch her life support off, she "wiggled her big toe" and medics kept her in a controlled coma. Days later she was given a tracheotomy and when her life-support machine was turned off again, she was able to breathe on her own. Remarkably, just eight weeks later she was deemed well enough to return home in Credenhill, Hereford, where she now lives with mum Carol and dad Jason, 43. Despite suffering head injuries which left one side of her brain "dead", the other part of her brain which is not normally used was undamaged. Amazingly, the undamaged side of her brain developed in such a way Sam was able to learn how to walk and talk again.
