Jean-Pierre Adams, an ex-PSG defender dies after 39 years in coma
Jean-Pierre Adams, a former France defender, died at 73 after spending 39 years in a coma.
The late former defender, who played for Nice and Paris Saint-Germain, had been in a vegetative state since 1982, following a routine knee operation that went wrong.
During the surgery, there was a problem with the supply of anaesthetic. Also, a cushion used to prop him up, had slipped without hospital staff noticing.
Adams suffocated and suffered a cardiac arrest.
According to his wife, Bernadette, the anaesthetist failed to spot the signs that he was lacking oxygen “because of his skin colour”.
Adams, who was born in Senegal, spent the next year in a coma in hospital before he was taken home to be cared for by Bernadette.
He was able to open his eyes and digest food, but was unable to move or talk.
