Wang Shuboa, a 48-year-old Chinese man who spent 12 years in a coma after a car crash in 2006, has finally woken up after his mum looked after him around the clock, reports Mirror.
Shuboa suffered catastrophic injuries in the accident which happened in Shouguang, when he was 36.
He spent more than a decade being cared for by his mom, Wei Mingying, who was at his side when he regained consciousness.
Shouguang, 75, spent all her savings on her Shuboa’s treatment and revealed that, at times, she went for a month without eating. She is now £13,000 in debt as a result of huge medical bills.
Tearful Shouguang was at his son’s side when he opened his eyes, having spent years rising at 5am to wash, feed and tend to him.
His father died when he was young, meaning she was responsible for caring for him.
