Wife of Army Veteran Says He is Waking Up from Coma


(Breitbart) – The wife of an Army veteran who suffered a traumatic brain injury at his workplace says he is slowly waking up from his coma.

“Last week, he started moving his left side, opening his eyes,” Kyli Belt told KSBW.

Kyli Belt’s husband, Tony Belt, 39, has been stuck in a coma for ten weeks after he was involved in a workplace accident back in September. He fell 18 feet from a scissor lift at a steel production facility in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and suffered from a traumatic brain injury.

“The doctors told me he probably wasn’t going to make it to the weekend,” she said.

Tony made it through the weekend, but then doctors told Kyli he would not wake up. He again defied expectations.

Tony is known to have been a fighter throughout his life, serving in the Army for eight years and going on deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

He suffered a number of injuries while serving in the military, including being shot in the head and back, which eventually led to him receiving a Purple Heart award for his service. CONTINUE
