Video: Niall Woods battles back after six months in coma


The remarkable courage of a man left in a coma for six months after suffering a stroke when he was just 19 has been celebrated.

Niall Woods (26) had to learn to walk and talk again after the devastating blow.

Last night he picked up the Adult Courage Award at the Stroke Association's Life After Stroke Awards.

His proud parents, Caroline and Tommy, saw Niall, from south-east Belfast, recognised for the inspirational way he has faced the aftermath of the injury.
