“Everyone thought I was dying,” he quipped. “It made me understand that no matter whether I’m doing big stunts or small stunts, I need to be really careful.”

A coma

“A coma is a state of unconsciousness where a person is unresponsive and cannot be woken,” the NHS explains.

The affected person will show no signs of awareness, and there will be limited brain activity, but the person is still alive.

“It can result from injury to the brain, such as a severe head injury,” the NHS adds.

Over time, the person may gradually begin to regain consciousness and become more aware of their surroundings.

“Some people will wake up after a few weeks, while others may go into a vegetative or minimally conscious state,” the health body says.

Coma patients are normally looked after in an intensive care unit (ICU) to ensure body functions, such as breathing and blood pressure, are supported.

People who do awake from a coma may feel agitated and confused to begin with.
