37 years ago, Jean Adams, a French footballer got injured while playing football and was instructed to undergo surgery.

Before the surgery could begin, the doctor in charge of repairing his torn ligament made a mistake while putting him to sleep and he has been unconscious since then.

The doctor in question is said to have been arrested but only fined €744 (US$815).

Remarkably, his wife Bernadette, whom he married in 1969, is still by his side to this day.

When the surgery was conducted, he was 34 years old and is now 71.
