COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man who returned to the U.S. comatose after suffering a traumatic brain injury from a car accident has given his family hope by making clear his dislike for the whole state of Michigan.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2taK2L2 ) doctors thought 38-year-old Zach Lawrence had little chance of waking up when he returned to Columbus in April after the accident in the Republic of Georgia.

Four months later, when asked to press a “yes” or “no” button about whether he liked Michigan, the lifelong Ohio State fan hit “no” twice to his family’s delight.

Lawrence’s wife, Meghan, credits Ohio State University’s Dodd Hall Rehabilitation Center for his unexpected progress.

The startup consultant raised in Reynoldsburg has begun making sounds, keeping his eyes open and smiling at his children.
