Maria Kudrina was far along in her pregnancy when she was horrifically hit by a train. She was left in a coma but, four months later, doctors performed a Caesarean to save the baby.
Just before Christmas, Kudrina, 31, was standing on a train station platform waiting for a train when she stumbled a fell because of the large number of people waiting alongside her. The train struck her in the head twice as it passed by despite her husband’s best effort to help her regain her balance. While Kudrina suffered massive head injures that placed her in a coma, thankfully her unborn baby was uninjured in the accident.
Now, Kudrina has given birth — a miracle in and of itself. But her husband is hoping for a scond miracle that, one day, his wife will wake up.
Kudrina suffered massive head injuries and medics called to the scene fought to keep her alive before she was taken to GKB67 Hospital. Doctors at the hospital were able to confirm that the baby was unharmed.
The young mother’s survival seemed unlikely, but she was placed in intensive care, where she’s remained in a coma.
The newborn, named Maria after her mother, was delivered by caesarean section weighing 1 pound, 1.6 ounces and measuring 15 inches long. Doctors say she is doing well and remains in an incubator, but is expected to survive without problems.
Since baby Maria’s birth, doctors have been able to use medicine that may help her mother awaken without fear of harming the unborn child.
“Is a miracle, and now we are hoping for a second miracle,” a family friend told CEN.
