An Oklahoma woman whose memory was wiped out from an accident that left her in a coma is set to renew her vows with her husband next month.
Angela Sartin-Hartung, 55, was tragically hit by a police car while crossing the road at the intersection of York Avenue and 72nd Street back in October 2013.
When Sartin-Hartung, who is currently married to Jeff Hartung, woke up from a coma, she had no recollection of her husband or the past decade they spent together.
The woman believed she was still married to her first husband, who is now deceased, Sartin-Hartung told the New York Daily News in an interview.
Since the tragedy, the couple have been working to rebuild their relationship, and Sartin-Hartung said she has fallen in love with her spouse all over again.
The pair’s 2000 wedding had also been sadly erased from Sartin-Hartung’s memory, and at the time, she believed their teenage daughter was still a toddler.
The couple is planning to renew their vows in Central Park on June 19.
‘Every single day is about making new memories now. I’m very fortunate because I get to do that again. My life wasn’t taken,’ she told the Daily News.
‘I’m getting excited. My memory is still completely gone, and it takes me a lot to remember to get excited about things,’ she added.
