KANSAS –  Maggie Meier, who went into a coma after suffering a seizure in 2008, was somehow still able to shoot a beach ball through a hoop. Meier had played basketball for years, and doctors believe that the motion of shooting a basket was so deeply embedded in her that she was able to do it without thinking.

After two-and-a-half months in the coma, Meier’s family would move her into a chair and give her a beach ball to shoot through a makeshift hoop. She would practice for several minutes before returning to her comatose state.

Her mom, Margaret said “Seeing her every day, not getting any better, it was horrible”, but she would do things that would make us know she was still there.” reports ABC NEWS.
