Man Wakes up from Coma, Immediately Demands Taco Bell Food

35-year old Jake Booth of Bonita Springs, Florida developed bronchitis, which turned into pneumonia. While hospitalized for that pneumonia, he had a heart attack, then fell into a coma.

Booth spent 48 days in the coma before becoming conscious again. Doctors were worried that he may have suffered brain damage. But when Booth was able to express himself, the first thing he said was "I want Taco Bell"--a clear sign that he had the full command of his mental faculties.

It would be 22 more days before Booth was allowed to eat solid food. But when doctors cleared him to do so, the first thing he ate was a bag of Taco Bell tacos. USA Today quotes Booth's brother, Jason Schwartz:

“We’d all been waiting an entire month for him to eat those tacos,” Schwartz said. “It was symbolic of the entire thing — more of a metaphor of him having woken up and being given a second chance at life.”
