Baby wakes from coma days after doctors wanted to pull life support

- In September, doctors told 1-year-old Marwa’s parents that their little girl was facing impending death and put her in an induced coma. On Nov. 22, just as doctors were preparing to end her life support, the girl awoke.

Doctors put Marwa, who is from Marseilles, France, in an induced coma after an aggressive virus attacked her nervous system, Inside Edition reported.

“Doctors think she will never be able breathe on her own,” her father, Mohamed Bouchenafa, wrote in a Change.org petition, including that she may not walk or eat on her own. The family started the petition to raise money to take the case to court.

Over 115,000 individuals signed the petition, but doctors told the family that, due to budgetary issues, they would turn off the girl’s life support within a week.

Then, ten days later, Marwa awoke, unassisted. Mohamed captured the moment in a video posted to Facebook.
