Michael Schumacher reportedly in coma after ski accident in France

By Deeq on 30 Dec 2013

Attached Image Reports coming in from Europe indicate that the seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher was skiing at a resort in Meribel, France, when he fell and injured himself, hitting his head on a rock. Fully aware of the benefits of head protection, Schumacher was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, but the severity of the impact has apparently left the racer in a coma.

Though conscious after the impact, Schumacher was reportedly left dazed and shocked from the impact as he was airlifted first to a trauma center in Moutiers and then transported to University Hospital Center in nearby Grenoble. Schumacher arrived in a coma and required immediate brain surgery.

There are conflicting reports of Schumacher's present condition, with initial reports suggesting the injury was "not very serious" and newer information suggesting that he sustained "severe head trauma."

There were also reports saying that the 44-year-old German was "suffering a serious brain trauma with coma on his arrival, which required an immediate neurosurgical operation".

Press conference : 

Schumacher is still fighting for his life in an induced coma.

The seven-time F1 world champion has had one operation, which removed clots on the brain.

Doctors say they are working hour-by-hour and are unwilling to give any more information.

They did say, however, he wouldn't have survived without a helmet.

Hospital has confirmed that the seven-time Formula One World Champion 1 is battling a number of "very serious problems" stemming from his weekend skiing accident sustained in the French Alps. First, Schumacher endured cerebral hemorrhaging that was repeatedly "flooding the brain coaxial lesions" and he has also suffered a cerebral edema. Doctors reportedly have the racer in an induced coma as well as hypothermia in an attempt to reduce potential brain damage. Jean-François Payen, Head of Anesthesiology at the hospital said Monday at an early-morning press conference, "For the moment, we can not decide on the fate of Michael Schumacher."

Paris Match also reported that Schumacher's helmet had "exploded" into three pieces upon impact with a rock on the ski slope.
