A man thought by doctors to be in a vegetative state for 23 years was actually conscious the whole time, it was revealed last night.
Student Rom Houben was misdiagnosed after a car crash left him totally paralysed.

That's hard to believe... I mean, even if he was totally paralysed, he could still signal through blinking, eye movements, or with his tongue. You would also think in 23 years he would have figured out how to tap his finger on his own if he can do it now with only a short amount of therapy. I don't know..
