This can happen outside Bourne Identity and Days of Our Lives? A Florida man woke up in Palm Springs, California, with no memory of his past and speaking only Swedish. The 61-year-old Michael Boatwright, found unconscious in a Motel 6 in February, believes his name is Johan Ek and has no memory of his two ex-wives or his son. Nor does he remember how to exchange money or use public transportation. He has only $180 and a few Chinese bank accounts, but the only one he can access has $7 in it. Doctors call the phenomenon transient global amnesia, which is triggered by physical or emotional trauma and can last for months.
