An Italian newspaper says a terminally ill woman was briefly awoken from an induced coma to get married.
La Repubblica reported that the 50-year-old nurse asked doctors to help her marry her longtime partner after being diagnosed in July with a terminal strain of hepatitis.
The Rome daily - which did not identify the woman - said Wednesday that family members donned masks and sterilized clothes to attend the ceremony Sunday in the northern city of Padua.
Doctors brought the woman to consciousness for a few minutes - long enough to say "yes" - before she slipped back into the coma, which was induced to relieve pain.
She is only expected to live for a few weeks.
City and hospital officials declined to give further interviews.
