Music was the food of life for a seven year old British girl who got from coma after listening to a song by musician, Adele.
Charlotte Neve was in coma since April after suffering from a rare type of brain hemorrhage. Doctors said the child’s survival chances were not good and the mother, Leila hoped that wouldn’t be true.
The young Charlotte remained in the coma for a week but on the miraculous day, her mother came to visit and heard Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” playing on the radio. She was touched as it was their favorite song together, she soon started singing along, just like she did with her daughter around.
Charlotte is said to have smiled abruptly and surprised the mother and the hospital staff. “I couldn’t believe it,” Leila Neve told the Telegraph. “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…[They] said it was like I ‘unlocked her,’ and from that day she started getting better and better.”
Two days later, she was speaking and able to get out of bed. Her mother says that she’s not surprised her music-loving daughter responded to one of her favorite songs, but it’s still a miracle overall. “How she’s still here is beyond everybody. I was told that she was very lucky to survive.”
