Man Wakes Up After 10-Year-Long Coma And Claims He Was Aware The Whole Time

For a decade, it was like he was trapped in his own body until someone noticed a glimmer of recognition in his eyes.

Martin Pistorius has quite the story to tell and trust us on this one, it is one for the ages. This man was in a 10-year coma and at first, the physicians believed that he was unaware of the world around him.

When Martin was just 12, he got sick and slowly slipped into a coma-like state where he was not able to communicate with the rest of the world.

At first, the doctors believed that he was experiencing a degenerative illness and had no concept of the world around him. Eventually, they would realize just how wrong they were.

According to NBC News, it took more than 10 years before people knew the truth. Martin was able to see and hear everything around him for this entire time! This young man was essentially a prisoner of his own body.

It’s one of the most bizarre stories that we have come across and our hearts certainly go out to him. We cannot begin to imagine just how frustrating it would be to live this way. The ordeal was very difficult and painful for Martin but he learned a great deal about people in the process. Fortunately, he is here to provide all of the lessons that he has learned.

We are not going to spoil the following clip for our readers but trust us on this one, you are going to want to watch the video for yourself.

For some, a mere video may not be enough, though. That’s why we are proud to report that there is a book for all of you to check out. We are definitely going to be ordering our copy as soon as possible, that is for sure. Martin Pistorious’ autobiography “Ghost Boy” is currently available.

Please be sure to check out this touching video for an awesome message from Martin. It’s a poignant story, for sure, but it is a story that needs to be told. We would not be surprised to see his story being told on the big screen one day.
