Sad story of former PSG player who has been in coma for 37 years in coma

Jean-Pierre Adams now 72 years olds is a French former professional footballer who played as a centre back. Since March 1982, he has been in a coma following an operation.

Before Marcel Desailly from Ghana, Kylian Mbappe from Cameroon-Algeria, Paul Pogba from Guinea and Mali’s Ngolo Kante had a path to the French national football team-Les Bleus (The Blues), Jean-Pierre Adams from Senegal had already begun that path.

He became a professional footballer with African ancestry from the West to join the Les Blues as prior admissions had come from North Africa or Martinique.

Adams and his wife Bernadette were married in April 1969 and had two sons, Laurent (born 1969) and Frédéric (1976). Following a ligament rupture injury, he was hospitalized for surgery on 17 March 1982 at the Édouard Herriot Hospital in Lyon. After an error made by his anesthetist, he suffered bronchospasm which starved his brain of oxygen and he slipped into a coma.

In the mid-1990s, when a court of law adjudicated on the case, both the anesthetist and trainee were given one-month suspended sentences and fines that translated to an $815 fine. His wife continued to tend to his needs, refusing to consider euthanasia.


  1. This is so sad….a whole 37 years of someone’s life wasted sleeping….he slept as a young man,by the time he would be waking up…old age wld have caught up with him..I can’t begin to imagine the pain of his wife and children….God heal him..cuz there is nothing impossible for you to do

  2. Euthanasia, active or passive is how em folks in the medical line ask for permission to pull the plugs. The wife has such faith, I marvel.

  3. It’s really pathetic, but God understands and knows why he is in that condition. And I believe there is a purpose for that. And He will surely take all the glory. Everyone of us is like a clay in the hand of God and so can use to mode us in the way He likes. We can only surrender to His will.
