A 19-year-old boy spoke for the first time in six months after the doctors had declared him "certified dead" following an accident. The boy had been hit by a van and suffered life-threatening injuries on his head.

Miracles happen around us every day, and despite medical science making exceptional progress day by day, it's not always completely accurate. The same holds true for Lewis Roberts, a resident of Leek, Staffordshire, in England.

Lewis fell prey to a tragic van accident in his hometown on March 13 and was hurried by an air ambulance to Royal Stoke University Hospital. Upon examination, the doctors explained that he had sustained a "brain stem death."

According to medical science, brain stem death is a condition when a patient is put on an artificial life support machine with no brain functioning. Lewis, who was then 18, succumbed to his wounds, and his family was told to say their final goodbyes. According to NHS:

"If someone in the UK is diagnosed as brain dead then the damage is considered irreversible and they are legally confirmed as dead."

Following his diagnosis, the doctors asked his family if they wished to donate his organs to help seven other people, and they agreed. However, a few hours before the operation took place, the then-18-year-old boy opened his eyes and started breathing without support.

Lewis turned 19 in July and has been hospitalized in a seriously ill-health condition. Miraculously, he woke up last weekend and said his very first words in a very long time: "Mum, I love you... Your the best (sic)." His family shared regarding his condition:

"A miracle any family could wish for after being told he was given a zero chance of pulling through. After this Lewis had carried on progressing."

Fortunately enough, Lewis is now responding to his treatment. According to his family's statement, he has begun reacting to pain tests, shows limb movement, and can even move his head from side to side. He even blinks and moves his mouth.

However, Lewis' parents have been unable to visit him recently because of a coronavirus-positive patient in his ward. But he's slowly recovering and gaining strength every day, and the family is appreciative of the doctors' help in the matter. His sister, Jade, shared:

"Clear as day!! As you can imagine mum is a crying, bubbering mess."

Jade also acknowledged the hospital staff's assistance and support, further adding that she and her family would not be able to visit Lewis for at least two weeks. Still, they are glad he's recovering properly.

While the family is celebrating Lewis's miracle recovery, they have also started a fundraiser, which has contributed about £6,000 ($8222.73) until now.
