Miracle! 1-year-old baby wakes from coma just before his life machine was removed


A miracle baby came out of a coma the moment doctors were ready to turn off her life support machine.

According to MirrorUK, one-year-old Marwa was hospitalised in September, in an induced coma after suffering from a virus that caused severe neurological disorders.

Against parent’s wishes, the doctors, citing “aggressive therapy”, wanted to disconnect the device that was keeping her alive.

The parents, from Algeria, started a petition on Facebook , “Not without my Marwa”, to help raise funds to challenge their decision.

With over 70,000 signatures, the court ruled in favour of an “extension of care” at La Timone hospital, Marseille, for two months.

But doctors were insistent that they would fight to turn off the respirator sooner – terminating her life – arguing that she will never walk, eat, or breathe independently.

Just ten days later, Marwa woke.

The footage, shared by her dad on Facebook , shows the baby react to his voice and even smile.

“Her treatment continues, but we see daily progress, and it gives us great hope.
“When I talk to her, she hears my voice, she reacts, sometimes she smiles,” he told a local news site .
