It's a pain in the heart to read about Jean-Pierre Adams who was a former P.S.G. player. He has been in coma for 39 years after receiving an anesthetic that was meant to keep him out for a couple hours.

Jean-Pierre suffered the knee injury on March 17,1982 and has been in coma since then till date, he is still alive.

Adams was born and raised in Daker until the age of 10, when he left his native Senegal on a pilgrimage to Montargis in the Loiret department alongside his grandmother, who was a devout Catholic.

When they arrived, she enlisted him at a local Catholic school, Saint-Louis de Montargis. He was adopted by a French couple shortly after his arrival in the country.

During his studies, Adams worked at a local rubber manufacturer and he started playing football at several local clubs in the Loiret area.

Adams got married in April 1969 and had two sons, Laurent born in 1969 and Frédéric born in 1976.

At the age of 33 he suffered from a knee injury and he was hospitalised for surgery on 17 March, 1982 at the Édouard Herriot Hospital in Lyon. After an error made by his anaesthetist, he suffered a bronchospasm which starved his brain of oxygen and he slipped into a coma. He is still alive today and at the age of 73.

Let us all remember to pray for his soul. 🙏

I feel very bad reading through this, if he had known. He would have stayed in his home lived happily till now. I pray that God touches him

I swear na hin family i pity pass. Make God just touch.

Wow! What a sad story. I can't believe he has been laying there all of this time. I can't even imagine what it would be like for him to wake up into the current world. There weren't even cell phones at the time of his injury. The poor family. Truly a very tragic event.

He's even a grandfather now. So much change since when he has been in coma. God will save us all from any tragic events

Wow I didn't realize that a knee injury could make him go to sleep for so long due to a medical error. I hope he wakes up soon

It wasn't really the knee injury that made him go into coma. It was the fault of the doctor that administered the wrong anesthetic to him that made his brain starve from oxygen and led to brain damage.

Yea I mentioned the medical error at the end of the sentence. But I was probably a little vague in rewriting the sentence.
