Devastating Injury Sends Athlete Into Coma. Days Later He Wakes Up Fluent in Spanish!
Science| | By Mauricio Castillo
His native language of English was lost to Nsemoh, and he was only able to communicate in Spanish, a language he now says he believes he picked up from his brother and his friends. “My friends would always talk to me in Spanish and would teach me,” he said to WSB Radio. Slowly, his Spanish fluency has faded away and his English has returned with his ongoing recovery. This stunning development has not hindered Nsemoh’s eagerness to return to the soccer field once he is fully recovered, though his coach has stated he will only allow him back on if he wears a helmet. “It’s my passion. It’s the one thing I want to do for my career,” Nsemoh said. Have you ever heard of anybody waking from a coma with a strange new ability?
