(ANSA) - Rome, February 9 - A 12-year-old girl has come out of a two-week coma after listening to a video message from Juventus captain and former Italy forward Alessandro Del Piero.
The parents of Giada, a big Juventus supporter from the small southern town of Cerenzia, believe the footballer made an important contribution to the happy outcome. "That night (after listening to the message) something special happened," said the girl's father, Francesco.
"First she moved her hand and then after a few hours she called out 'mamma'. Then after about 24 hours she talked and asked for an ice-cream".
The girl's parents appealed for Del Piero's help via a charity after she fell ill and slipped on January 22.
In the message, he said: "Hello Giada, I'm Alessandro Del Piero. I hope you can wake up as soon as possible to watch lots of our and my games, to come and see us and, above all, get to know each other".
what are the chances this was not just a coincidence and she did respond to him? it would be amazing, no?
