Car crash victim awake after 28 days in coma
A comatose car crash victim regained consciousness nearly a full month—28 days—after she began the ordeal.
The first third of her stay was spent in and out of major surgery to care for her broken neck, arm, wrist, and ankle. The accident occurred when a speeding fugitive hit her head-on in Urbandale.
“I feel really tired and sore, and I’m in a lot of pain,” Martinez said when prompted about how she was feeling. Her family reported feeling elated that she was finally awake and that her children are handling the situation much better now that they know that she is awake and recognizes them. Martinez’s sister, Marcy Ashley, has said that they’ve just started to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
