Calif. man wakes up from coma, gets married

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Love knows no bounds; a terrifying fall, months-long coma and on-going therapy couldn’t stop a Sacramento couple from tying the knot on Christmas Day.

Just six months ago, a wedding seemed impossible for Tommy and Regina Jeglum. Tommy, a telecommunications tower climber, fell 50 feet while working in June. He was in a coma for more than two months.
