He was 34 when he went into coma. He is 71 years old now.

He has spent over 35 years unconscious. The time he has spent in coma is now officially more than the time he has spent being aware of himself and of his surrounding.

The sad and traumatic part is the said doctor and his colleague only went to jail for a month and was fined about 815 dollars for an error that has cost a man his entire life, cost his family a father and a husband and cost the world a great athlete.

His wife Bernadette, who he married in 1969 still stays by his bed till today, looks after him, feeds him and with the help of nurses and physiotherapists available, she’s able to bathe him and provide 24hours a day care. No love I know beats this.

I’d read up on this and apparently there was an ongoing strike on the day of his operation between nurses and doctors so instead of Jean-Pierre returning to the hospital another day, they put him on anaesthetic which was meant to numb him a few hours but instead they starved his brain of oxygen and because there was a strike going on, the anaesthetist was overseeing eight other patients and worsening the situation, a trainee put him on the wrong bed.
