 'Rolling Stones' Classic Revives Man Out of Coma
Members of British band 'The Rolling Stones' have been hailed as heroes after one of their songs woke up a fan of theirs from a coma.

Brit citizen Sam Carter had lost consciousness after contracting severe anaemia, and he only woke up after his favourite Stones track 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction' was blasted into his ears.

Carter, from Stoke, England, was given just a 30 per cent survival rate by doctors.

His wife Eva was advised by doctors to play his favourite track through headphones strapped to her husband's head.

"I suddenly had a burst of energy and knew I had a lot more life left in me and that's when I woke up - to the sound of the first song I ever bought," Contactmusic quoted Carter as saying.

"I would love to thank Mick (Jagger) and the rest of the Stones personally - I feel they really did help wake me from my coma," he added.

Ironically, the single was the first the retired baker bought when he was a teenager in 1965.
