A 20-year old Tennessee woman, in a coma since December 2014, woke up this week and discovered that she had given birth while unconscious.
Sharista Giles sustained a head injury during a horrible car accident that happened after she fell asleep driving home from a Nashville concert with a friend.
Giles was 5-months pregnant at the time of the accident and doctors told her mother she had just a 10% chance of recover. Doctors delivered her baby, “Baby L”, prematurely and miraculously, she opened her eyes this Wednesday, April 8.
“The doctors were telling us there was nothing else they could do,” Beverly Giles, 49, of Madisonville, Tennessee, told ABC News. “They already gave up hope. We never gave up. She’s fought this hard.”
Her aunt told ABC News, the new mother even got her first look at her baby boy.
“She has been looking around and squeezing loved ones hands,” a post on her Go Fund Me page notes.
While doctors are still gauging Giles’ prognosis, the GoFundMe page also states that Baby L is still in the NICU, weighs over 6 pounds and is “doing good.”
