An Ohio man who returned to the US in a coma after suffering a traumatic brain injury in a car accident overseas has given his family hope – by making clear his dislike for the state of Michigan.
Zach Lawrence, 38, suffered the injury in an accident in the former Soviet republic of Georgia in March. He returned to Columbus in April and, the Columbus Dispatch reports, doctors thought he had little chance of waking up. His family was told they could expect to turn off his feeding tube within six to 12 months.
Four months later, though, Lawrence was asked to press a “yes” or “no” button in answer to the question of whether or not he liked Michigan. To the delight of his family, the lifelong Ohio State football fan hit “no” twice.
