A woman in Fresno, Calif., gave birth to healthy baby boy this week, despite being in a coma.

Melissa Carlton fell into the coma in March. Doctors were performing surgery to remove a benign tumor in her brain 10 weeks ago, when she had a seizure which damaged part of her brain. Her family wasn't sure if Carlton -- or the baby -- would survive. But they did.
