Gemma Holmes was on her moped when a collision with another vehicle sent her rocketing through the air. It was a miracle that she was even still alive after the crash – let alone that she survived the trip to hospital. Then, following the accident, Holmes slipped into a coma, and medics all but gave up hope of her pulling through. Three months later, however, everything changed.
September 8, 2012, was a day that may have begun like any other for the then-25-year-old Holmes. Back then, the care worker from Hilperton, England, was on her morning commute as usual, riding her scooter to her job at a nursing home. During the journey, though, something terrible happened.
