According to toofab, doctors performed a caesarean section on Rosi when she was still unconscious to save her daughter, Caterina.
Rosi and her daughter risked brain damage due to lack of oxygen during the delivery, and they were later flown to Austria for more treatment.
Her husband, Gabriel Succi, told La Zione newspaper that the family did not expect her to wake up, and it was a real joy after so much suffering.
Succi also noted that his wife looked unrecognisable and very relaxed, plus she is receiving medicine that will lead to other physical progress.
Her hospital bills were paid by money raised through a GoFundMe account created by Succi.
