A young woman has given birth despite being in a coma following a horrific crash. Fortunately, she awoke three days later to be able to spend her life with her new baby.

Wei Liu, 30, gave birth while in a coma in hospital after the horrific crash and didn’t know she had a new son until she awoke from the coma. In an accident in Manchester, England, Zain Iqbal crashed into Lui’s cab — leaving her badly injured as medical officials rushed her to a hospital. Iqbal was attempting to pass another vehicle at the time and speeding.

weiliuLiu was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary in a critical condition and her son Lucas was delivered after an emergency caesarean in A&E a month early.

Here’s more on this story from the London Telegraph newspaper:

Her partner Geng Yu, 24, was told after the smash, in which he also suffered injuries, that he may have to choose whose life to save.

She was left with a catalogue of devastating injuries, including a severed artery above her heart, fractured ribs which had pierced her liver and a shattered pelvis along with a fractured cheekbone, broken foot and a gash on her head which needed 48 stitches.

And Ms Liu, a shop assistant for Hermes in Selfridges in Manchester city centre, had to spend a total of 40 days in hospital before finally being allowed home. Her injuries mean she is still in a wheelchair.

Mr Yu needed surgery for a punctured lung, broken ribs and also suffered injuries to his feet, while another passenger suffered bruising.

Miss Liu’s said in her victim impact statement that she constantly has headaches and has a bleed on the brain.

“I still have pain to my heart, it starts like heartburn, I have to have a scan every year for my heart injury,” she said.

“I am very emotional, at first I thought it was my hormones with having my son Lucas. There is still not a bond, there seems to be no connection, like you can take him away and no bond would be broken.

“It is very upsetting. I have no memory of giving birth. He is doing fine and is a healthy baby.”
