Seven-year-old Charlotte Neve suffered a rare type of brain hemorrhage in mid-April, and slipped into a coma after two operations were performed to stop the bleeding. After Charlotte had been in the coma for about a week, doctors told her mother, Leila, that her daughter’s chances didn’t look good and to say her final goodbyes.
But, when Leila, 31, got in the hospital bed to give Charlotte her final cuddle, Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ came on the radio – a song the pair used to sing together. As this was a song she and Charlotte both enjoyed, Leila began singing along.
Unexpectedly, Charlotte smiled in response, surprising the hospital staff. Two days later, the little girl was speaking and able to get out of bed. Although not yet fully recovered , she has returned to school, can dance and ride her bike.
Her mother says that she’s not surprised her music-loving daughter responded to one of her favorite songs, but it’s still a miracle overall. “How she’s still here is beyond everybody. I was told that she was very lucky to survive.”
