A man from Yorkshire who underwent brain surgery and spent three days on life support following a ruptured blood vessel awoke in a hospital bed and started speaking and singing in a strong Irish accent.
A Yorkshire man woke up from brain surgery to find he'd turned from a flat vowelled, thrifty dalesman into a blarney kissing, 'Danny Boy' singing, happy-go-lucky Dubliner. The Daily Mail reports that 30 year old Chris Gregory spent three days on life support, after a blood vessel in his brain ruptured."

Will they do another operation to get him to be ok? I don't think it's something you can change back with an operation so I imagine he would need to be coached back into this original accent; perhaps a speech therapist or even a dialect coach!
