A girl is born to a mother in a coma – level 1

26-05-2021 15:00

Szilvia from Hungary must go to hospital. She has Covid-19. She can’t breathe. She is on a ventilator. It is a machine that helps her breathe. Then she is in a coma for many days.

When she comes to hospital, she also gives birth to her daughter. Szilvia can’t care for her daughter because she is in a coma. Her husband Jozsef cares for the baby when his wife is in hospital. His wife is very ill. The doctors don’t know if she can survive.

After 40 days, Szilvia wakes up. She survives. The doctor says that it is a miracle.

Now, Szilvia is OK. She is at home with her husband and her daughter.

Difficult words: coma (when you sleep for many days), survive (to live after a dangerous situation), miracle (something that many people think is impossible).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
