Doctors have credited superior forces for a young man’s incredible recovery after he was struck by a drunk driver.
It was May 2018 when Cole Burton was examining stones at the side of a road as a part of his geology class.
Before getting the chance to see what’s coming at him, the student was hit by a car operated by a drunk driver. While Cole doesn’t remember anything between the time he got hit and the time he woke up at the hospital, his family remembers too well just how close he was to dying.
“Many are asking what has happened!” the family shared on a Facebook page called PRAY for COLE back in May. “Cole and his geology class were on the side of the road studying rock formations.
“A driver lost control, ran off the road, and hit Cole and another student. Cole, and the other student, Nick, were both medflighted to UAB.
“Once Cole got here, they decided to take him to surgery right away to repair the damage done to his abdomen. He has holes in his intestines and a tear in his colon. He also has a brain bleed. He is currently in a coma. Throughout the next few days it’s just a waiting game.”
Speaking to WAGA-TV, the young man’s mother, Tina, said:
“They said he probably won’t make a meaningful recovery and will likely be a vegetable the rest of his life. They said we can withdraw services if we choose.
“We decided if God wants to take him, God will take him, but that wasn’t our decision to make.”
And fortunately, the family stayed strong and decided to keep their hopes up despite the grim prognosis. Not only did Cole wake up but he was able to relearn all the basic things, such as talking, that we normally take for granted.
“My doctors have told me medical science can’t explain my recovery,” Cole revealed. “They told me God has something to do with it.”
As for Cole’s advice to others who might find themselves in his position, the young fighter said: “Just focus on the day. They go slow, but the weeks fly by so treat every moment as an opportunity to get better.”
