Comatose man wakes up to give daughter away

A man from Handforth, near Wilmslow, Cheshire, woke from a coma after his life support was switched off – and ten days later gave his daughter away at her wedding.

Brian Paolo, who has emphysema, began to breathe on his own after the machine was switched off, according to The Sun.

His daughter Anne-Marie said: “The doctors had prepared us for the worst and it looked like they were right. But dad fought back.
