Croatian doctors are baffled after a teenage girl who fell into a mysterious coma woke up speaking fluent German.
Nurse Marika Lenovic, 28, said: 'The case has attracted a lot of interest, not just among the media but also among medical professionals.'
The girl is still being cared for at the hospital and is receiving regular visits from her family although there has reportedly been a large degree of frustration at the fact that they can no longer communicate with each other.
Hospital staff have even had to use an interpreter to translate the teenager's words to her family although apparently when they speak to her in Croatian she does understand - but she cannot respond in anything other than German.
Psychiatric expert dr Mijo Milas who has been involved in the case said: 'In earlier times this would have been referred to as a miracle, we prefer to think that there must be a logical explanation - its just that we haven't found it yet.
'There are references to cases where people who have been seriously ill and perhaps in a coma have woken up being able to speak other languages - sometimes even the Biblical languages such as that spoken in old Babylon or Egypt - at the moment though any speculation would remain just that - speculation - so it's better to continue tests until we actually know something.'
The teenager was only in the coma for 24 hours, and it's thought it may have been prompted by extremely high body temperature.

She's a walk-in. The girl who was in a coma decided to leave her body and go onto the afterlife and gave permission to another spirit to enter her old body, who was likely German.

She saw last week's episode of LOST.
And copied it.
Exact same thing happened.
