Amnesiac Florida Man Wakes Up Speaking Only Swedish

florida man This can happen outside a science fiction book? 

A Florida man woke up in Palm Springs, California, with no memory of his past and speaking only Swedish. The 61-year-old Michael Boatwright, found unconscious in a Motel 6 in February, believes his name is Johan Ek and has no memory of his two ex-wives or his son. Nor does he remember how to exchange money or use public transportation. He has only $180 and a few Chinese bank accounts, but the only one he can access has $7 in it.

Doctors call the phenomenon transient global amnesia, which is triggered by physical or emotional trauma and can last for months. Read more at The Desert Sun.

  1. happened before
    the guy may not have spoken it before, but he for sure has heard it before, otherwise this cannot happen
    that’s why it’s possible to have someone speak a language that he never knew in a hypnosis show

  2. It really is not correct to post Tabloid like articles on a site like this. There is a real story and this is only the headlines. If you read the article in the link posted, he lived in Sweden for several years & speaks the language.
