It was a traffic accident that sent Marina Spyriadi, 28, into a big sleep two and a half years ago. The young lawyer was transfered to the Mytilene hospital with heavy brain injuries in a state that the doctors’ described as ‘clinical dead’. Her family did not give up the hope, that Marina may recover some day. The miracle occurred some time ago. She wope up form the deep coma. Her situation is continuously improving, she has begun to eat from the mouth, she learns to speak again.
There are still surgeries to be done, a lot of physiotherapy until the young woman fully recovers. But she is back to life.
It’s amazing how the brain ‘decides’ to start working again.
But such cases raise again the question of organ donation from ‘clinically dead’ patients….
