Donald HerbertTen years ago a
firefighter in Buffalo, Donald Herbert, rushed into a burning building looking
for survivors. He was knocked out by a collapsing roof, taken to hospital and
remained in a coma for two and a half months. A year later he regained
consciousness but did not recognise his wife and four children and seemed to
have no idea who he was.
Ten
years later, last Saturday, he really woke up:
“I want to talk to my wife,”
Mr. Herbert was quoted as saying. A staff member called his wife, Linda, but it
was his youngest son, Nicholas, 13, who picked up the phone and began speaking.
“That can’t be,” Mr. Herbert
said. “He’s just a baby. He can’t talk.”
