London, May 26 (ANI): A three-year-old girl fell into a coma after being struck down by meningitis, but stunned her family when she woke up five days later - singing Abba hit Mamma Mia.
Layla Towsey was so ill after getting the brain bug she had been put on a life support machine.
The little girl's family was told to give her a final kiss goodbye when she fell into coma.
However, it was far from the final curtain for Layla, who regain consciousness singing Abba tune.
"We had been preparing for bad news as the life support machine was keeping her alive. But on the Sunday I could hear her singing Mamma Mia quietly. I couldn't believe it. I knew then she would be OK," the Sun quoted Layla's mum Katy as saying.
Layla, from Gidea Park, East London, had learned the song after seeing the Mamma Mia! movie. She has now made a good recovery, with just scars on her legs from blood poisoning.
"It's one of her favourite songs - she loves it. She got as close to death as you can get. She's a miracle," Katy added. (ANI)
