“31 year old, Mathew Taylor had met with an accident on the Indonesian island of Bali, while he was there to teach English. Doctors had said that he might never regain consciousness but sings have increased hopes and now he even moves hands to answer her call, Topnews reports.
Anda Nurul, 27 from Bali met him while he was on the island. She had to return home from the UK after her visa ran out. She made a call when Mr. Taylor’s parents were at the hospital and they helped him listen to her voice. Soon after that, he began to cry and the same thing happened as Anda called again.
“He had tears in his eyes as we held the phone to him. She asked him something and he said a silent `yes’. Then tears were coming down his face. It was brilliant.
