7-year-old Boy Sleeps For 11 Days Straight And Doctors Don’t Know Why | Photos

The rather unusual story has been told of a little boy who caused a stir by going to sleep for as many as eleven straight days.
Wyatt Shaw is a 7-year-old boy from Elizabethtown, Kentucky, who recently woke up from an 11-day slumber that left doctors scratching their heads.
USA Today reports that when he finally woke up, the second-grader had trouble speaking and moving around, but has since made good progress and is expected to make a full recovery.
After attending his aunt’s wedding and being the life of the party, Wyatt’s mother, Amy, expected him to sleep in the next day, but she never imagined that it would take 11 days for him to finally wake up. She tried waking him up several times, but Wyatt just couldn’t stay awake, and even though he sometimes opened his eyes, it just seemed like he wasn’t really aware of anything.
“He was awesome, he stole the show. He stole the last dance — he took the bride away from the groom,” Amy Thompson recalled about the wedding before her son’s mysterious sleep marathon.
“Monday I tried to wake him up, and he fell back to sleep. I’d say, ‘Wyatt, Wyatt, Wyatt!’ And he fell back to sleep again. It was horrible.
Realising that there was something wrong with her son, Thompson took him to a doctor, who, after hearing her story, immediately sent them to Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville, where the boy continued to sleep for 10 straight days.
Doctors initially suspected a virus or bacteria, since the boy had apparently complained of stomach pain and headaches before falling into the deep sleep, but all the tests came back clean.
Thompson told USA Today that Wyatt “was just having electric misfires in his brain and it was just causing him to stay in a constant sleep,” so doctors used new medication usually used for helping with seizures to wake him up, and after 11 days, the boy finally came out of his unusual slumber.
The second-grader couldn’t move or speak, at first, but with the help of the medical staff and the support of his family, he has made great strides on his road to a full recovery. He still has problems speaking some words and can only walk with the help of his mother, but he is getting better every day.
But the mystery surrounding the cause of Wyatt Thompson’s 11-day slumber still remains, and doctors say that we may never know what happened, so they and the boy’s family are focusing on his recovery now.
The bizarre case is just as bizarre as the mysterious “sleeping syndrome” that has been plaguing Kalachi village, in Kazakhstan, where people routinely fall into a deep sleep for up to six days in a row.

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)

Published

on

The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.

He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.

The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.

CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
