Comatose Girl Awakens for Adele Song
Can a song bring someone back from the brink of death? Quite possibly. In fact, there are many people who tout the therapeutic benefits of music and the case of a seven-year-old British girl might be the kind of example that reaffirms that belief.
It must have been absolutely terrifying for mom, Leila Neve, when on April 13th, her little girl, Charlotte, suffered a brain hemorrhage that required two surgeries but left her in a coma. Doctors said that she was not expected to live but then a miracle happened. A full week after she lost consciousness, she smiled (her first outward sign of life in days!) when her mother sang along with “Rolling in the Deep.” The mother remembered the child’s fondness for the track and decided to sing it to her and wasn’t disappointed.
Leila explained: "Charlotte started smiling, and I couldn't believe it. It was the first time she had reacted to anything since the hemorrhage. The nurses were astounded and told me to keep singing, and she smiled again. The nurses said it was like I 'unlocked her' and from that day she started getting better and better. A day or two after the Adele incident ... she literally went from smiling and being giddy to standing up in bed," she continued. "It was a miracle."
Absolutely incredible! Now, the young survivor has returned to school and has even resumed her dance lessons. Never understand the healing powers of music!
