Food isn't just about sustenance, it has a power of its own. Food has the power to bring people together, to get a conversation going and so much more. Just the very mention of our favourite food gets us excited, and we eagerly await when we'd get to try it. But can you imagine the mention of food getting someone out of a coma? Believe it or not, a teenage boy in Taiwan woke up from his 62-day coma after he heard his favourite dish 'Chicken Fillet' being mentioned to him.

According to reports, the 18-year-old male named Chiu was in a coma after being injured in a traffic accident while riding his scooter. Taiwan News reports that he had suffered serious damage to his body due to the accident. Doctors worked on stabilising his condition but were unable to stop him from slipping into a coma even deeper.

Family was constantly by his side, praying for him to get well and regain consciousness. The situation turned around when Chiu's older brother came to the hospital to visit him. He jokingly said, "Brother, I am going to eat your favourite chicken fillet." Hearing his favourite food mentioned, Chiu's pulse suddenly accelerated. Then, he miraculously became conscious and his vital signs too stabilised. He came to visit the hospital staff later after fullly recovering and even gave them a cake to express his gratitude. Sounds like a scene straight out of a Bollywood movie, right?
