Formula 1 News: The living but unresponsive legend
On December 29, 2013, Schumacher was skiing at the Meribel Resort of the French Alps with his son Mick. A supposedly happy vacation turned out to be horrific for the German.
While crossing a reportedly unsecured off-piste area between Piste Chamois and Piste Mauduit, he fell and hit his head on a rock. Even though Schumacher had all the safety gear, the head injury was too chronic for him to return back to normal. Had he been without a helmet, the doctor said he wouldn’t have made it. Immediately he was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital in France for emergency treatment.
He was put into a medically induced coma. Michael also underwent two operations to release blood and pressure from his brain. The so-called “traumatic brain injury” proved to be fatal for him and his family. Ever since the family has kept most of the news scarce. After six months he came out of a coma but still was in the wake-up phase which could last for long. In September 2014, Schumacher returned to his home in Switzerland for further rehabilitation and has been undergoing constant therapy.
