9-year-old boy wakes up from surgery thinking he is gangsta

A nine-year-old boy in America has woken up from surgery thinking he is a gangsta.

But fear not – Prof Michael Saling from the Florey Institute of Neuroscience told Neil Mitchell it’s more amusing than concerning.

‘What this looks like is post-anaesthetic confusional state – but it’s quite an extraordinary one,’ Prof Saling said.

‘Part of his brain has woken up ahead of the rest of his brain.’

Prof Saling said the phenomenon is not uncommon, but this child seems more coherent than usual.
