Chinese Toddler Awakes from Coma Addicted to Cigarettes, Beer

Three-year old Ya Wen awoke from a coma brought on by a car crash a year ago, craving cigarettes and beer. She began by sneaking her father's, then started "buying" her own at a local market, who thought she was getting them for her dad. Further, her mother says three beers is now nothing to the tot, and she refuses to wear anything but boys' clothes. She says young Ya Wen now acts and speaks like an adult.

The father quit smoking and the family moved across town, presumably to a better neighborhood, but say the child still cries for cigarettes whenever she sees them.
