Patrick was in a coma for seven weeks. He told James O'Brien what he did the moment he came out of the coma - and it put a smile on everyone's face.

We're all being affected by the coronavirus lockdown, but all of us in different ways. James was asking his listeners what the most important thing that's affecting their live at the moment.

He got a call from Patrick and it stopped all listeners in their tracks.

Patrick caught Covid-19 and was in an induced coma from 23rd March until 27th April and doctors were close to turning off his life support three times.

James asked him what he wanted to do when he came out of the coma last week. His response: "The biggest thing I want to do is to marry my girlfriend and to show her how much I love her and how much she means to me."
