High School Soccer Player Awakes From Coma Speaking Fluent Spanish
A Georgia soccer player woke up from a severe concussion that nearly killed him and left him speaking fluent Spanish reports WSBTV. Rueben Nsemoh, a Brookwood High School honor student was brutally kicked in the head by an opponent as he was diving for the ball, resulting in a coma for three weeks.
The teen’s parents claim Rueben woke up from the severe coma speaking another language:
And when he did wake up, his parents say Rueben spoke only in Spanish at first, a language he’d never spoken fluently before. For now, Rueben stays at home, twirling a ball and watching games on TV.
“Sometimes I daze out. Sometimes I feel like I’m not there, but I am,” Rueben Nsemoh said.
Friends of the family have since started a GoFundMe page to help with the medical bills:
Get well, Rueben!
