The Sad Story Of Jean-pierre Adams, A Man Who Has Been In Coma For 37 Years. by theenchanter: 5:46pm On Nov 15, 2019
Jean-Pierre Adams was born in Dakar, Senegal on March 10, 1948 and was a central defender who has been in a coma since March 17, 1982, due to medical negligence following an operation handled by a trainee at Lyon Hospital.

The man from Dakar, Senegal, had wrapped up his playing years with 22 caps for the French team....Of his physical attributes, Adams was described as a force of nature; strong physically, patriotic and determined. It was, however, his central defensive partnership with Marius Trésor forming the “Garde Noire” – “Black Guard” – that became famous.

Adams played for Paris Saint-Germain and Nice, narrowly failing to win the French title with the latter again, while also knocking Barcelona out of the 1973-4 UEFA Cup.

Following a ligament rupture injury, he was hospitalised for surgery on 17 March 1982 at the Édouard Herriot Hospital in Lyon. After an error made by his anaesthetist, he suffered a bronchospasm which starved his brain of oxygen and he slipped into a coma.

It’s been 37 years since the once jovial man has been in a coma. His last word to his wife before he left for the surgery was “It’s all fine, I’m in great shape.”

Till today, his wife continues to tend to his needs, refusing to consider euthanasia. though now 71years old, he does not age physically.. having spent more years in coma than in real life.

THE SLEEPING Vampire...

37YEARS is A Long Time. I Try To Imagine If It Was In Nigeria, Bros Would Have Been Buried Before Six Months.

What If He Sleeps Till Jesus Come? Will Rapture Carry Him?

I could only imagine if he didn't die today,

Like I mean what if he wakes up earlier like yesterday and decided to go back to pitch, woulda been history having a 75 yr old (that didn't age physically) on the pitch.
