BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – A woman from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has awoken from a 27-year-long coma after suffering a serious injury in a traffic accident in 1991, the UAE-based The National newspaper reported.

Mounira Abdullah, 59, suffered a severe brain injury in 1991 after a car she was traveling in collided with a bus on the way to pick-up her son from school.

Her son, Omar Webair, was four-years-old at the time of the accident, but was left unscathed at the time because his mother had cradled and protected him during the moment of impact.

Her brother-in-law, who also suffered a devastating injury, also had a miraculous recovery last year, regaining consciousness  from a 26-year-long coma.

Omar has opened up about the accident and about his mother’s progress following years of treatment in an interview with the UAE-based newspaper The National.

“I never gave up on her because I always had a feeling that one day she would wake up,” Omar said.

“The reason I shared her story is to tell people not to lose hope on their loved ones; don’t consider them dead when they are in such a state,” he continued.

“My mother was sitting with me in the back seat. When she saw the crash coming, she hugged me to protect me from the blow,” Omar added.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
