Is there anything Adele can’t do? The eight-time Grammy Award winner is being credited with waking a 7-year-old girl from a coma.
The Telegraph reports that Charlotte Neve, 7, suffered a brain hemorrhage in April. She was taken to the hospital and had two operations before slipping into a coma. Charlotte was in her coma for about a week and Leila, the girl’s mother, was starting to give up hope.
“It’s a complete miracle. Doctors told me to say goodbye and I thought I was going to lose my little girl. I climbed into her hospital bed to give her a cuddle – she was wired up to machines and unresponsive – and Adele came on the radio. I started singing it to her because she loves her and we used to sing that song together.”
Leila said that the little girl started smiling when she heard the song and that the nurses encouraged her to keep singing.
“Charlotte started smiling, and I couldn’t believe it… It was the first time she had reacted to anything since the hemorrhage. The nurses were astounded and told me to keep singing, and she smiled again. The nurses said it was like I ‘unlocked her’ and from that day she started getting better and better.”
Over the next few days Neve began talking, laughing, and eventually got out of bed. Since hearing Adele’s song, the little girl has returned to school and has resumed her dance classes.
“A day or two after the Adele incident … she literally went from smiling and being giddy to standing up in bed. It was a miracle.”
