On Thursday, August 16, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin reportedly passed away in her home. She had been suffering from pancreatic cancer, and both her family and the music industry at large are mourning her loss as a titan of vocal performance.

Fox News broadcast a memorial segment in remembrance of Franklin, but they happened to overlook one detail: at a key moment in the video, alongside the text "Aretha Franklin, singer, 1942 ― 2018," a picture appears of a woman singing. Upon closer examination, it's obvious the singer is not Franklin, but is, in fact, fellow superstar Patti LaBelle.

The photo of LaBelle appears to have been taken during LaBelle's 2014 performance of "Over The Rainbow" at the White House for President Obama.


Twitter had a few words to say about Fox News mixing up these two notable and very recognizable singers.



People threw healthy doses of snark in the news network's direction.



Many on social media were simply shocked that Fox could make such a glaring oversight.




Others were not as surprised.


After all, it was another big day at Fox News!



The network attempted to explain their mistake, but their excuse was a bit disingenuous.


The mistake is especially cringe-worthy considering the contentious relationship LaBelle and Franklin shared. After Franklin's passing, however, LaBelle appeared to let bygones be bygones with a message on Twitter:


One can only hope LaBelle, Franklin, and viewers will extend the same forgiveness towards you, Fox News.

There are three different types of comas we can have. One is called toxic-metabolic encephalopathy, which is caused by illness or infection across the body. There's the medically induced coma which is caused by medical professionals to temporary cause a deep state of unconsciousness. Then there's the persistent vegetative state where the patient is the unaware of their surroundings and unable to movement.

However, after u/Pilot_Mosley asked Reddit, we're not so sure that every coma patient is completely unaware of their surroundings. Many people reported hearing their family or the nurses talking to them. Some said the had vivid dreams, only to learn those events actually happened.

Redditor Pilot_Mosley wanted to know what actually is going on in the unconscious mind and how it changed them after:

"Patients who woke up from a long coma, what's your story? How different were things?"

Read on to find out how the coma effected these people, whether it was a day or years.
