Wounded teen wakes after 9-day coma

When I posted about Daniel Wultz on Sunday, what I didn't post (because I didn't know it) is that Daniel was in a coma. Today, he woke up:

Daniel Wultz, a high school student from Weston, Florida, was in Israel with his parents to visit relatives during Passover. He and his Israeli-born father, Tuly, were lunching near Tel Aviv's central bus station on April 17, when a Palestinian suicide bomber ignited 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds) of explosives at the entrance of the restaurant. The bomb killed nine people and wounded dozens.

On Tuesday, Daniel regained consciousness, said Yael Tsubary, spokeswoman for Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital, where the youth is being treated. He is not yet able to speak, she said, but he can communicate with his eyes.

Although the teenager's condition is still listed as critical, Tsubary said he is likely to recover.

Tuly Wultz sustained moderate injuries and was pronounced "out of danger" by hospital officials on Monday.
