Amazing Videos: This Teen Dies If He Falls Asleep

*Have you seen this? Man, the next time you think about complaining about insomnia, or anything for that matter, you might want to think about 17-year-old Liam who, without a special device to keep him alive, dies if he falls asleep. In this episode of ‘Living Differently,” we meet Liam, who suffers from Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome or Ondine’s Curse (a spectacular story in itself). Doctors didn’t expect him to live six weeks beyond birth, but Liam has proven them wrong: Next week he turns 18.

Watch his amazing story below from BBC Living Differently.
