A man who suffered a horrific car crash that almost claimed his life two weeks ago, woke up from a coma believing that he was the famous rapper, Kanye West. 47-year old Benjamin Davis, was transported to the Columbia Memorial Hospital on February 17, after being implicated in a violent crash. He was critically injured and suffering from some severe brain trauma, but the doctors were miraculously able to stabilize him and keep him alive.
According to Scoop, Mr. Davis spent more than two weeks in a coma, and finally woke up yesterday, visibly confused about his identity. The man from Fremont County in Wyoming, who works as a cashier in a Safeway, is convinced that he is the hip hop artist and producer, Kanye West. According to the medical staff, he began asking questions about Kim Kardashian as soon as he woke up, and before becoming agitated and aggressive.
Mister Davis’ wife, Jennifer Wong , had been told two weeks ago that it would be a miracle if he ever came out of his coma, and even then, he would probably have lost much of his brain capacity. Therefore, she was extremely surprised last night, when they received a phone call from the hospital, telling them that her husband was awake.
“We got the call from the hospital and [the hospital staff member] was saying “Hi Madam, I just wanted to ring and let you know that your husband’s actually started to come out of the coma”… and she said, “I don’t know how to say this… but he’s convinced that he’s Kanye West,” his wife told reporters. “I laughed at first, thinking it was one of my husband’s jokes, but she told me that this was serious. This is certainly the strangest thing I have ever seen, but at least he’s alive and healthy! I just hope it doesn’t last too long.”
