Jean-Pierre Adams, a former centre-back for Paris Saint-Germain and the French national team, is still in a coma 39 years after a knee operation went horribly wrong

Former Paris Saint-Germain player Jean-Pierre Adams is still in a coma, 39 years after receiving aesthetic prior to a knee operation.

Adams' career was going well, he had played more than 120 times for Nice and had spent three seasons at PSG, as well as 22 appearances for the French national side.

After spending the entirety of his career in France, he retired in 1981 after a brief stint with local amateurs FC Chalon.

But just a year later, his life was cruelly derailed after a botched operation on his knee.

Adams was scheduled to go under the knife after rupturing a ligament in his knee, but the anaesthetist made a crucial error and the then-39 year-old suffered a bronchospasm.



His brain was starved of oxygen, and he fell into a coma.

Adams is yet to wake 39 years later, and lives in a modified bed normally found in a hospital, according to Sport Bible.

His wife, Bernadette, has remained by his side throughout the entirety of his life in the coma, and said last year that she and his two sons continue to bring him gifts for occasions.



She said: "No one ever forgets to give Jean-Pierre presents, whether it's his birthday, Christmas or Father's Day."

Despite being unable to move his body, Adams can still sense when Bernadette is with him, she explained.

On occasion she has to go away, Bernadette revealed that his carers can sense a change in his mood.



"He senses that it is not me feeding him and looking after him," she added.

"It's the nurses who tell me, saying he is not the same.

"I think he feels things. He must recognise the sound of my voice as well."

Just read the below extract from Wikipedia on the ridiculous fine and sentence for both the anaesthetist and trainee

"In the mid 1990s, when a court of law adjudicated on the case, both the anaesthetist and trainee were given one-month suspended sentences and fines that translated to a $815 fine.[16] His wife continued to tend to his needs, refusing to consider euthanasia."

This makes me doubt the existence of any God or gods. How can you all what you created be in a coma for 39 and still, he hasn't been healed?

the suffering person is brain dead and can't seek God's face. So is it appropriate for him to continue suffering because his family didn't? undecided. A serious God will reveal himself to the man in coma who will then wake up and testify. Not this sadistic fucker you people call God

This should never happen to anyone.
What a sad and emotional story to read.

nigerian pastors are scammers. They cant heal no one
Why not keep silent if you can't contribute anything reasonable to the topic Tunde?
Learn how to use the word 'few, some, most ' in your speech, it will help you in life.
STOP Generalizing........okay?

He is not but he won't come to you if you don't seek him first..

Do you think Jesus didn't know that the man is blind?
But he still still asked him what do u want me to do for u.

Some of U jus reason in reverse.. Someone made a mistake dat has cost someone his life basically and U are making irrelevant comparisons. If my relatives make the same mistake would it make it less of a life threatening mistake? If someone had made a life threatening mistake during ur birth would U have com into existence?

how do you even reason sef??
you think the doctor who committed the blunder has no regrets?
you think if people go about suing everyone for their mistakes, people would dare to do things.
don't let emotions cleanse your reasoning.
of mistakes were to be repeated, then it's a different case.

I was not there neither were you mate ! So we cannot say Jesus even ever healed a blind man .! Think man just like today in the big news , if he healed a blind man , the News and oh independent critics will carry this info , he flew to the sky without aid or breathable air? He walked on water ? But No one but the bible and Koran recorded it? No one?
