In tonight’s episode of Emmerdale (Monday, January 29), Cain Dingle woke up from his coma whilst lying in his hospital bed.
He’s an extremely fortunate chap, escaping death after Aaron attacked him in the garage.
This isn’t the first time Cain’s survived a near-death situation though… oh no! Here’s a history of the key moments Cain managed to escape death.
1. The Kings beat Cain up
In 2009, Carl and Jimmy King demanded their money back from Cain but he refused to co-operate.
The brothers then beat Cain up despite him not fighting back. Eli and Marlon then rushed to help Cain and save him.

Emmerdale: 2. Zak left Cain for dead
In 2011, Cain had another near-death experience after being knocked out by a metal object.
As a result of this attack, Cain suffered a clot on his brain and needed major surgery to save his life.
Cain initially blamed Jai Sharma for hitting him on the head but is was later revealed that Zak Dingle has actually been responsible.
3. Adam’s fire causes Cain to become trapped
In 2012, barely a year on from his attack, Cain became trapped in a fire at the garage after being confronted by Adam.
Adam set fire to the garage after being angry at Cain for destroying his family. Cain was then trapped in the flames.
However, Adam later felt guilty and came back just in time to stop Cain from dying.
4. Cameron Murray’s near strike
Killer Cameron Murray dated both Cain’s daughter – Debbie – and Cain’s sister – Chas.
The two often ended up trying to kill each other, with Cameron almost striking Cain on the head with a wrench at one point.
However, Debbie managed to convince Cameron not to go through with it – thankfully!
Emmerdale: 5. Cain Dingle’s brain aneurysm
In 2015, Cain started to get bad headaches and found out that he had a brain aneurysm as a result of his attack in 2011.
Cain didn’t want to have an operation and ended up falling into the river after feeling dizzy.
Vanessa and Kirin found Cain and helped him to safety. Cain’s aneurysm eventually then healed over time.
