Whoa! This dude woke up from a coma with brand new art skills, pursues a job as a carpenter and model maker

John Keefe

This is one of the strangest and wildest stories I have ever seen.

A brit was suffering from a rare brain disease and had to undergo surgery. He was in a coma for more than a month, and when we woke up and recovered he discovered a new skill that he never possessed before.

Moe Hunter was struck down by a rare form bacterial meningitis and tuberculosis in his brain that left him fighting for his life in 2004.

He spent more than a month in a coma, and doctors performed lifesaving surgery at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, installing a shunt to drain fluid from his brain.

Before his diagnosis, Moe had no interest in crafts or any notable artistic ability.

He awoke from brain surgery and recovered much more quickly than expected: “My doctor said that I was a walking miracle.”

Not only that, he soon left his friends and family scratching their heads at his display of creativity. The 38-year-old suddenly had an inexplicable talent for drawing, painting, and model building — despite ‘being rubbish’ at art in school.

38 years of not being able to do art, and then something alters your brain and you are suddenly an artist.

What a fascinating insight into the intricacies of the human mind.

“I really wasn’t creative before in the slightest. I was more interested in going outside, football, and computer games.

“I look at all of my stuff now and I’m, like, ‘never in a trillion years could I do this stuff’. I have no idea how it happened.

“When I spoke to the neurologist he just said ‘enjoy it’, and said there’s so much about the brain they still can’t decipher and this is just a phenomenon.

“Nobody has really given a medical explanation for it. I just know comas can do crazy things to a human brain. They said there’s many stories and theories over the years about people having awakened from comas with skills… even speaking other languages.”
