US woman dies after spending 42 years in coma
A woman from Miami, Florida, died on Wednesday, after she spent 42 years in a diabetic coma. She was 59.
According to the Miami Herald, Ewarda O'Bara was a high school student in 1970 when she fell ill, threw up her medicine and slipped into a diabetic coma, Fox News reported.
Before O'Bara lost consciousness, she asked her mom, Kay to never leave her side.
Kay kept her promise, taking care of her O'Bara until she died five years ago.
That's when O'Bara's sister Colleen stepped in and continued taking care of her in the Miami Gardens home.
