Why was Patrick in a coma?


Can anybody please tell me what caused Patrick to go into a coma?

reply

It's left ambiguous in the movie. Personally my theory is that he was already developing some sort of psychic ability and the coma was a necessary step in their development- like going into a coccoon. But who knows.
