Woman from UAE wakes up after 27 years in coma

United Arab Emirates– After suffering a tragic road accident in 1991, a woman living in the United Arab Emirates has woken up from coma.

For 27 years, Munira Abdulla was in comatose after her brain was severely injured due to a traffic accident where her car collided with a bus. Munira was 32 years old at the time.

Munira’s son Omar, who was in the car, was only four at the time. He was unharmed, while his mother’s brother-in-law who was also the driver was severely injured.

‘Road to Recovery’

Omar, now 31, opens up for the first time on the miracle that happened to his mother. Speaking to United Arab Emirates based newspaper, “The National,” he tells about the miraculous journey of how his mother woke up from coma.

Omar vividly recalls how his mother hugged him and protected him during the accident. He also said he did not give up throughout the almost three decades that his mother was unconscious.

After the accident, Munira was brought to London for treatment where she was declared to be in comatose.

She was transferred from one hospital to another in search of proper treatment. Munira was fed through a tube and underwent physiotheraphy to ensure that her muscles wouldn’t be severely affected by her vegetative state.

In 2017, a grant by a Crown Prince Court enabled Munira to get treatment in Germany where she underwent surgeries.

The Miracle

It was when Omar was having an argument in a hospital when his mother suddenly made responses and movement, sensing that his son was in an uncomfortable situation.

The doctors look into her and after three days, she started calling out her son’s name. Munira’s condition is progressing as she begins to do conversations and be more responsive to pain.

She is now undergoing physiotheraphy as part of her rehabilitation.

Munira’s case is considered rare in the medical field.
