39 years in a vegetative state
Adams was in a coma as a result of anesthesia a year after his retirement and was cared for by his wife, Bernard Adams. Doctors administered high doses of anesthetic to the professional athlete before he had knee surgery – actually a routine procedure – and Adams was almost dead. The abuse resulted in a lack of oxygen to the brain, which brought Adams to a vegetative state – and did not wake up.
