A lucky Pole has woken up from a 19-year coma to find the Communist party no longer in power and his staple diet of tea and vinegar no longer on the menu. Ex-railway worker Jan Grzebski,now 65, fell into a coma after he was hit by a train in 1988.
The polish worker found that during his 19 year old coma he had moved to the UK with his family and been employed by Manchester Transport Bus Service for the past 7 years.
Contrary to popular belief, coma victims do not necessarily lie inert and can sometimes walk around and even talk.
The 65 year old woke up wearing 80's fashions of a padded shoulder suit and a mullet cut, however he felt that this will help him mingle with other bus drivers since his recovery and intends to keep his 80's styling.
Jan commented, "Last thing I remember is seeing a train, then I wake up and I'm driving a bus!"
Jan credits his bizarre recovery to 94 year old pensioner Ada Jenkins, who kept prodding him when he failed to answer her query as to the cost of a half-fare to Gorton.
Jan, celebrating with his family today, said,"Having driven a bus in a coma for 7 years, I may consider learning some of the English language now."
