Holiday Miracle as Man Awakes From Monthlong Coma | ABC News Blogs - Yahoo!

Doctors told Benjamin Pessah's family he might not live after he was shot in the head. But after waking from an almost month-long coma, Pessah said his first words and took his first steps just in time for Thanksgiving.

Pessah, of Burlingame, Calif., was walking home from a Halloween party in San Francisco Oct. 28 with two friends and his girlfriend when a stranger came up and touched his girlfriend inappropriately. Pessah, 21, stepped in to protect her when the man pulled out a gun and shot him in the head.

"It was pretty bizarre and unnecessary," Pessah's older brother, Nick Pessah, told "He [the stranger] attempted to shoot the group of four of them. He missed everybody but the last bullet hit my brother in the head."
