After 31 years in coma, car crash victim dies

After 31 years in coma, car crash victim dies

After spending 31 years in coma under the care of his parents, an Italian car crash victim has finally given up the ghost.

The accident victim, Ignazio ‘Cito’ Okamoto from Brescia, was involved in a collision on March 19, 1988, and suffered a brain haemorrhage at the age of 22.

 His friend with him in the car did not survive the crash. Ignazio spent two years in a clinic, but his parents decided to take him home to try to bring him back to health. He died at the age of 54 after suffering cardiac arrest.

“For 31 years we lived cut off from the world. The doctors had told us that he wouldn’t wake up but we cared for him every day, hoping that maybe…” Ignazio’s mother Marina told the media.

His father Hector, a 77-year old Mexican with Japanese roots, added: ‘now life has changed. I woke up this morning at 5am and I didn’t know what to do. I went to the garden to water the flowers. The last few nights I slept in Ignazio’s room, even though he is gone, to be near him.”

Hector said he had left his job in 1990 to look after his son, with Marina working to support the family. Mr Okomoto said he had never thought about euthanasia for his Ignazio.
