Paralympian Victoria Arlen Was In A Coma For Four Years And Started Communicating Again By Blinking

Victoria Arlen was trapped inside her own body, unable to move, without anyone realizing that she was aware of what was going on around her. She spent four years unable to communicate with her family or doctors and felt terrified about what was happening to her. But then, Arlen found a way to tell the world that she was still in there.

Arlen currently works as a reporter for ESPN. And the 23-year-old is also a former Paralympic swimmer. She took home one gold and three silver medals, in fact, while competing for Team U.S.A. at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
