A Queensland woman who was seriously injured in a caravan fire has awakened, meeting her baby for the first time and discovering that her spouse died attempting to save her.
On the night of March 22, the home of pregnant 20-year-old Tomeka Willis and Blake Whell, 22, at a mobile park in Logan, south of Brisbane, caught fire.
As the flames engulfed their home, Mr Whell dove to defend his pregnant partner from the fire, receiving burns to 95% of his body.
Due to the severity of their injuries, both Mr Whell and Ms Willis were put into an induced coma, but Mr Whell died in hospital that night when his father decided to switch off his life support.
The next day, Ms Willis gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
Christine Willis, her mother, recalled what happened when her daughter awoke.
