Doctors said he wouldn’t wake up, but KSU student overcame the odds (11Alive)
KENNESAW, Ga. (Jun 19, 2018) — A business student at Kennesaw State University was in a horrific car accident and doctors told his parents he probably wouldn't survive.
Michael Wolcott was unconscious for months after suffering a traumatic brain injury. But the 24-year-old finally regained consciousness after the terrible car crash. That within itself is a miracle as doctors say 90 percent of people who suffer from a traumatic brain injury, like his, never wake up.
