In 2005, Ayanda Nqinana was involved in a late-night car crash that nearly took his life on a road in Eastern Cape, South Africa. The accident left him with severe brain injuries, a fractured hip and legs, and unable to talk, leave his bed or feed himself.
Everyday for the past seven years his wife Nomfundo had visited her husband in East London’s Newhaven Hospital, hoping for signs that the man she had known before the accident was still inside his body.
After reading a story on the citypress.com Nomfundo decided to give her husband a sleeping pill called Stilnox. A mother whose son was in a coma had noticed her son was not sleeping well. She asked the doctors if she could give her son a sleeping pill, and the next thing she knew it had the reverse effect he opened his eyes, and said hello momma. Nomfundo decided to give her husband the pill and after five days the miracle she had been praying for happened.
Following the amazing recovery the hospital has since decided to re-evaluate it’s policies for using the drug more widely were now being formulated.
