Man Makes An Incredible Claim After Waking Up From A 12 Year Coma

A South African man was diagnosed with a degenerative illness as a child, and it left him in a vegetative state for 12 years. His family thought he was in a coma. His mother is very sorry now for some of the things she said in front of him.

Martin Pistorius wrote one of the most fascinating autobiographies you'll ever read. He wrote it from a unique perspective - his family thought he was in a coma all those years. At some point, though, Pistorius mentally woke up.

Though he became fully aware of what was going on around him, Pistorius was unable to move. He couldn't let anyone know that he had become aware. People continued with their lives as if he wasn't even in the room.

At one point, his mother even said she was heartbroken seeing her son lay there in a vegetative state. She told him she wished he was dead.

Pistorius was finally able to make contact with the outside world. With physical therapy and a lot of hard years, he was able to become more and more independent. He now gets around in a wheelchair, communicates with a notebook and computer, has received a degree and gotten married.

His book, entitled 'Ghost Boy,' hit the New York Times Bestsellers List. If you ever wondered what it was like being a fly on the wall, you should enjoy it.
