‘Orange Is The New Black’ Star ‘Waking Up’ After 16 Days In Medically Induced Coma After Car Accident


Michelle Hurst, best known for her role of Miss Claudette in the Netflix series Orange Is The New Black, is finally waking up after 16 days in a medically induced coma following a car accident.

She suffered major injuries and to avoid movement while doctors did multiple surgeries near her spine, she was put in a medically induced coma.

Hurst spent 16 days in a coma before “waking up.”  She is recovering in ICU at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.

An online fundraiser with a goal of $5,000 has been set up to help Hurst pay off the medical expenses

The fundraising organizers have updated supporters about Hurst’s condition, saying:

“She is progressing slowly, but progressing!  She is out of the medically induced coma and is responsive.”

We’re happy to hear that she’s getting better. Get well soon, Michelle!
