After a tragic car accident, Zhang Rongxiang recently woke from a coma in a near-vegetative state and nearly paralyzed to the sound of her 2-year old son beside her.
Now each day little Gao Qianbo attends to his mother, talks with her and even chews up food and tenderly feed her mouth-to-mouth, reported the Yangtze Evening Post.
Zhang, 42, had been in a coma ever since a car accident in 2010. Though doctors told her husband Gao Dejin she would never recover, they were surprised to discover Zhang was four-months pregnant.
Gao cared for her at home until Zhang gave the birth to Gao Qianbo on July 22, 2011 by a cesarean. She awoke from her coma in a Shuyang county hospital in Jiangsu Province in May.
The family has survived mainly on government subsistence with some support from relatives and friends.
