John Conner Benson, 19, and Alex Steele, 23, remain in critical condition at Anne Arundel Medical Center.
Alex’s father Ron Steele says it’s a miracle that the two have progressed so far in such a short time. He says the family was surprised to see them come out of the coma.
Both spoke in short sentences on Friday.
The men were injured when they were possibly struck by lightning on Wednesday on a beach along the Severn River.
Emergency personnel who responded to the scene found them unconscious outside a home in Annapolis.
