【看CP學英文】年初至今,繼新型冠狀肺炎肆虐全球到美國總統大選,許多外國網友皆在尋找一些輕鬆的消息緩解緊繃的情緒。

From the COVID-19 pandemic to the U.S. elections, many social media users are in dire need of more upbeat news these days.

因此,近期台灣一位男子因聽到「雞排」兩字突然從昏迷中被喚醒引發網友熱議,成為老外在這動盪一年久違的輕鬆報導。

There is, therefore, little wonder that the story of a young Taiwanese teen who awakened out of his coma by the words “chicken fillet” has become viral as it offers the comedic relief many so desperately need.

據媒體報導,這名來自新竹縣的邱姓男子於去年七月發生嚴重車禍導致多重內外器官受傷。

According to local Chinese-language media, a young teen from Hsinchu County, surnamed Chiu, was severely injured in a car accident in July last year.

邱姓少年因此動了六次大刀,歷經開顱、剖腹探查、右腎及脾切除等手術,最後情況逐漸穩定,但仍未恢復意識。

Following 6 major surgeries, including craniotomy, laparotomy, right kidney nephrectomy and splenectomy, Chiu’s condition gradually stabilized, but he remained unconscious.

然而,在邱姓少年昏迷的第62天,家人竟帶了一份雞排進醫院探病,成為少年爾後甦醒的關鍵。

On Chiu’s 62nd day of coma, his family brought a chicken fillet into his hospital room during their visit, which proved pivotal for his sudden recovery.

綜合報導指出邱姓少年的哥哥在他旁邊說:「弟弟,我要吃了你最愛的雞排!」後,少年的心跳突然加速,後來竟慢慢恢復意識!

Reports state that as soon as Chiu’s brother whispered in his ear, “I’m going to eat your favorite chicken fillet,” the monitors showed Chiu’s heartbeat accelerating, and he was gradually able to regain consciousness.

報導不僅讓在台外國人驚奇,也被瘋傳到他國的線上社群中,讓許多人大讚:這真是台味十足啊!

The story amazed both the members and friends of the foreign community in Taiwan and abroad, and many replied, “Can’t get any more Taiwanese than this!”

有人在下方表示「這應該是國際新聞」,其他人也在看完報導後哀嚎:「我現在好想吃雞排!」

Some commented, “This should be international news!” as others added, “Now I really want a chicken fillet.”

除此之外,也有外國網友建議,對美國病患應該改在他們耳邊呼喚美式連鎖速食店「福樂雞」。

Foreigners also suggested that whispering “Chick-fil-A”, a popular fast food restaurant chain in the U.S. may work well with American patients.

然而,由於「福樂雞」每週日因宗教原因公休,也有網友開玩笑地在下方表示這個方法一週內只有六天能派「上工」。

However, as Chick-fil-A closes on Sunday for religious reasons, social media users added that the solution will only “work 6 days a week.”
