    Found this to be an amazing story.

    A young father who was trapped in his own body after a stroke learned to walk and talk again – by copying his baby daughter.
    Mark Ellis was just 22 when he suffered a stroke and developed locked-in syndrome – a condition that leaves the sufferer's brain alert but their body paralyzed.
    The sudden stroke in August 2010 left him completely helpless, forcing him to communicate by rolling his eyes.
    A previously fit and healthy young man, doctors induced him into a coma and told his shocked family it was unlikely he would survive.
    Just two weeks earlier, his wife Amy, 32, had given birth to their daughter Lola-Rose.
    Mark amazed his doctors when eight months later he left the hospital and began learning how to talk and walk again – by mimicking his baby daughter.
