Default Schumacher 'critical' after skiing fall

http://in.news.yahoo.com/schumacher-...--f1.html?vp=1

Quote:
LYON, France (Reuters) - Retired seven-times Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher was in 'critical' condition with head injuries after an off-piste skiing accident in the French Alps resort of Meribel, his agent said on Sunday.

The 44-year-old German was in hospital in Grenoble and under the care of Professor Gerard Saillant, a brain and spinal injury expert who is also president of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) Institute.

"He suffered head trauma with coma that needed prompt neurosurgical treatment," Schumacher's agent Sabine Kehm said in a statement late in the evening, which a hospital official read to reporters.

"He remains in a critical condition."

A hospital official declined to give more details but said more information would be given on Monday.

Christophe Gernigon-Lecomte, the director of the Meribel ski resort where Schumacher has a vacation home, said earlier that the former champion was wearing a helmet when he fell and hit his head on a rock at around 11 a.m. local time (1000 GMT).

He added that the German had been conscious while being transported first to a local hospital in Moutiers before then being transferred to Grenoble.

"He was conscious but very agitated while being taken to hospital," said the director.

In Germany, Schumacher's accident topped news bulletins, with the bestselling tabloid newspaper Bild reporting on its website: "Schumi fighting for his life".

Bild reporters also said that Ross Brawn, the Briton who worked with Schumacher at Ferrari and Mercedes as technical director and team principal respectively, had arrived in Grenoble.

SHOCK AND PRAYERS

The Formula One community, and the wider world of motorsport, reacted with shock and prayers on social network Twitter for the champion to win his biggest battle.

"If anyone can pull through, it's him," said Britain's triple Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti, who is still walking on crutches after a huge crash in October that ended his racing career.

"Come on Michael, give us one of those race stints at pure qualifying pace to win through, like you used to. You can do it," said Schumacher's former Benetton team mate Martin Brundle.

Former Ferrari team mate Felipe Massa, who suffered a near fatal head injury at the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix, said he was praying for his friend.
Schumacher is the most successful Formula One driver of all time with a record 91 race victories in an extraordinary - and frequently controversial - career spanning more than two decades.

He won his first two titles with Benetton in 1994, the year when Brazilian triple champion Ayrton Senna died in a crash at the San Marino Grand Prix, and 1995.

The German then took five in a row with Ferrari between 2000 and 2004 in what now seems a golden age for the Italian team who named a square after him at their Fiorano test track.

Schumacher left the sport last year after a less successful three-year comeback with Mercedes following an earlier retirement from Ferrari at the end of 2006. He lives in Switzerland with his wife and two children.

Default Schumacher Family Break Silence Over Accident

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/schumacher...7.html#erbqfnf

Quote:
Michael Schumacher's family have thanked the public for their "great support" after the Formula One legend's skiing accident.
A statement on Schumacher's website said: "Following Michael's skiing accident, we would like to thank the people from all around the world who have expressed their sympathy and sent their best wishes for his recovery. They are giving us great support.
"We all know he is a fighter and will not give up. Thank You."
The 44-year-old remains in hospital in Grenoble after a skiing accident in the French resort of Meribel left him with severe brain injuries.
His condition is critical but stable.
Schumacher's wife Corinna, his 16-year-old daughter Gina-Maria and 14-year-old son Mick are at his bedside.
The seven-times world champion's fight for survival began on Sunday when he hit his head on a rock on an off-piste section of the popular French resort.
A source close to an investigation into the incident said his helmet had been smashed "in two" by the impact. Medics say it saved his life.
The accident has led to an outpouring of sympathy from racing drivers and fans alike.
Brazilian racer Felipe Massa, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Arsenal footballers are among the many public figures who have sent messages of support.
Schumacher's manager, however, has said there have been "constant attempts" to get access to him as he lies in an induced coma.
Sabine Kehm has confirmed that security at the hospital had stopped a journalist posing as a priest from getting into his room.
The German driver is the most successful in Formula One history, racking up a record 91 race wins.

Default Michael Schumacher Moved from Intensive Care to Rehab as 'Chances of Full Recovery Dr

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/michael-sc...6.html#T8SQ6gm

Quote:
Reports from Germany claim stricken Michael Schumacher has been moved in to rehab at the hospital where he has been treated since his catastrophic ski crash, last year.
In what is being interpreted as a gloomy sign for the 45-year-old's prognosis, Schumacher has left the intensive care unit at Grenoble University Hospital in the French Alps.
A German publication reported the news. Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's spokesman, did not respond to media enquiries about the seven-time Formula One champion's present location.
Bunte magazine claimed: "Schumacher's transfer to a special rehabilitation clinic is being prepared and the chances of full recovery have dropped."
Steps have been taken to prepare a room in a different part of the hospital to receive the former Ferrari racer.
As usual with Schumacher's condition and circumstances, verifiable information is at a premium because the family do not want to feed the high public interest about his plight.
Previous reports suggesting he was to be cared for at home near the banks of Lake Geneva in a specially built unit by wife Corinna, were later dismissed by her.
Schumacher has spent almost six months in a coma after cracking his head on a rock while skiing in the resort of Meribel. Fans and former colleagues hoping for a recovery were told in April there had been "moments of awakening".
But hopes for a full recovery by him recede as he spends more time unconscious.
