AMERICAN WAKES UP WITH NO MEMORY OF WHO HE IS, SPEAKING SWEDISH?

Michael Boatwright says he was born in Florida, but after waking up from a hospital bed in Palm Springs, Calif., all he can speak is Swedish.
Doctors in California are trying to crack the mystery of a Florida man and Navy vet who woke up in a Motel 6 with no memory of his past and the ability to speak Swedish, but not English.
Michael Boatwright was unconscious when he was discovered by police at the Palm Springs motel on Feb. 28.
When he woke up later at Deseret Regional Medical Center, he spoke only Swedish and said his name was Johan Ek, The Desert Sun newspaper reported.
Several pieces of ID, including a passport and a veteran's affairs medical card, identified him as 61-year-old Michael Boatwright.
But the man told doctors he didn't recognize his own face, didn't know where he'd come from or how he ended up at the hotel.
  • A duffel bag in the room contained other clues, including some exercise clothes, five tennis rackets, two cellphones, some cash and a handful of old family photographs, including some his ex-wife and son, his doctors say.
  • Boatwright said he didn't recognize anyone in the pics.
  • "The guy Michael — it wasn't me," the patient told the newspaper through a Swedish translator.
  • Doctors said Boatwright was most likely in a disassociated "fugue state" due to a condition known as Transient Global Amnesia, the newspaper reported.
