Having an identity is one of the few things we all have in common. That is, except for one man in California. The unknown man was found in the desert and brought to San Diego hospital. He had no form of identification and was completely anonymous.
The doctors knew that he had been in a car accident. He hadn’t been wearing his seat belt and, as a result, he flew out of the car on impact. This ended up saving his life as everyone else in the car died. They had been illegally trying to cross the border from Mexico.
In the hospital, the doctors concluded that he was in some kind of vegetative state. He was very much awake but was completely unresponsive. The young man had clearly lost valuable nerve functions. His brain had been immensely damaged in the crash.
Not knowing what else to do with him, the hospital staff transferred the man to an extended care facility run by the state of California. Despite his care costing 700 dollars a day, the state continued to support him for 16 years. Then, someone recognized him.
On Facebook, a woman saw a picture of the man. She thought he resembled her missing brother. She flew out to see him but, on arrival, realized that he was not him after all. Finally, they discovered the man’s name and contacted his sister. She facetimes him regularly but he remains comatose living in the nursing home.
