Wife refused to pull plug on comatose husband, years later he woke and said…

On July 2011 newly married Matt Davis was in a motorcycle collision that rendered him nearly brain dead and in a coma.  He and his wife Danielle had only been married 7 months.

Danielle, was by his side during those terrifying days in the hospital, as she watched her beloved husband incapacitated and unable to communicate, Wtoc news reported that Matt suffered “a broken femur, ribs, clavicle, jaw and skull, with a lacerated liver and traumatic brain injury.

When the day came that the doctors informed Danielle there was nothing they could do for her husband, she was faced with the decision of whether or not to “pull the plug” on her husband’s life support.

Danielle didn’t have to think about it, ““I knew that God could get us through that,” she said in an interview with Wtoc. “I didn’t think it was too big for God.”

Three years later Matt miraculously woke up from his coma one day and said two words, “I’m trying.” He’d been hearing Danielle’s words of encouragement all those years and he responded to her words.

He laid eyes on his loving wife, who had been by his side through this ordeal. Matt summed up his joy to see his wife’s face, “I saw her, and I was like, ‘Yeah!’”


 Danielle Davis, who received a dreadful phone call one sunny July day in 2011 that her husband, Matt, had been involved in a horrific motorcycle accident on a Savannah, Ga., interstate.
