Woman Wakes from 10-Year Coma When Husband Nibbles Her Toes

Lu Fengshuang fell into a coma after suffering a head injury. For 10 years, her husband tried everything to wake her to no avail. Zhang Kui dutifully remained at his wife's side, playing her music, speaking to her, even tickling her, but she remained comatose. "I then recalled someone saying that the feet are the home for many nerves. I wondered if I could wake her up by biting her feet," he told Chinese press.

Kui bit his wife's toes everyday for the last 10 years. The other day, as he was performing this task, his wife squeezed his hand.

While Lu Fengshuang has awakened from her decade-long coma and can smile, she cannot speak. Doctors are hoping to change that with rehabilitative procedures.
