That is exactly what doctors are aiming for in the case of a true medically induced coma, often using the same drugs or extreme hypothermia induced by exposure to a cold environment to halt blood flow entirely and permit surgery on the aorta. Shutting down function can give the brain time to heal without the body performing radical triage by shutting off blood flow to damaged sections.

When you are a "wanted" man, the first thing you do is go Richard Kimble.
Maybe they had some time to change their appearances. Maybe the doctors changed it for him.

I am not really seeing any damage to his throat that would hamper him from talking. Also, how was this guy able to climb out of the boat, yet he is in this critical looking condition?

IDK- looks like him to me.
People in critical or serious condition tend to look different in ways (I am being serious)- When I saw my Grandma at first when she was in critical, I thought I had the wrong room. Sometimes the drugs and procedures cause swelling, discoloration and a host of issues.
EDIT: I will say, there is/was an article on cnn.com somewhere that said he was swearing while in the Ambulance - Then it came out he "couldnt talk" which I do find odd.edit on 23-4-2013 by DarKPenguiN because: (no reason given)
EDIT 2: from the LA Times " The neck wound apparently did not initially silence Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, who was swearing profusely in the ambulance ride after his final confrontation with the FBI," www.latimes.com... - Weird, the CNN version and other versions were hard to find and even this article took some digging .edit on 23-4-2013 by DarKPenguiN because: (no reason given)

Look at the back of his neck. It looks stitched together. They said he tried to commit suicide so I image he put the gun in his mouth and fired a hole out of his neck missing anything vital. I don't think he could talk after doing that.
