F1 legend Michael Schumacher fighting for his life following horrific skiing accident

Retired Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, 44, is fighting for his life after he fell and hit his head on a rock while skiing off piste with his 14-year-old son Mick in the resort of Meribel in the French Alps yesterday morning Sunday December 29th.

Doctors who treated the seven-time Formula One world champion said he would ‘have died’ had he not been wearing a crash helmet. But despite the helmet, Michael Schumacher suffered serious head injuries that has left him in a coma since the accident. The German driver required immediate brain surgery as he got to the hospital and is currently being kept in an induced coma, officials said.

Speaking at a press conference at the Grenoble Hospital where he's being treated, Doctors said they can't predict the future for Michael Schumacher.
"Michael Schumacher was the victim of very serious trauma. He was very agitated when he arrived and we decided he was in a critical situation and he quickly went into a coma. The neurosurgical treatment he received brought us quite a lot of information. We had to operate urgently to release some pressure in his head. Unfortunately, he has some lesions within his brain. We judge him to be in a very serious situation. We cannot predict the future for Michael Schumacher." Continue...

Chief anaesthesiologist professor Jean-Francois Payen added: 
‘We can say he is fighting for his life. We think his helmet did help, without a helmet he wouldn't be here now. We judge him to be in a very serious situation. We cannot tell what the outcome will be yet. We are working hour-by-hour but it's too early to say what is going to happen and to have a prognosis.’
Doctors during the press conference
"On his arrival we examined him clinically and we realised he was in a serious condition, in a coma, with in fact cranial pressure. The brain scan showed a number of pieces of information, some intercranial haematoma (internal bleeding) but also some cerebral contusions (bruising of the brain tissue) and oedema (build-up of fluid). We operated urgently to try to eliminate the haematoma. After the operation we saw that we had been able to eliminate these haematoma but also sadly the appearance of various bilateral lesions. So therefore he was taken to intensive care to try to help.'
"I'd say this accident happened in the right place because he was taken into hospital immediately and operated on as soon as he arrived, this meant his state is critical and he is still in a coma and he will be kept in a coma.
"Everything that needed to be done has been done at the moment we can't really say when he will recover, we cannot answer this yet.
Schumacher's wife and two children are reportedly at his bedside. God please make him alright.

To me, some spots are simply dangerous! When some pals say they are going skiing,i tell them 'break a leg' meaning have fun but strangely they come back with one accident or the other that requires orthopedic surgery! Now how is that supposed to motivate to try out this life threatening spot!
I pray the F1 legend pulls through this ordeal but one thing i know,he is an adrenaline junkie and will never stop

He will be alright by his grace Amen.

I would like to say 'pls get well'and stop there.But I want to add...white people tend to find accidents even when its not looking for them.I have never seen a black person jump into the ocean that he is scuba diving and end up getting swallowed by a shark or jump from the cliff and say he wants to hangglide or sum weird sports thatput them in danger.In naija here,we worry about falling containers and collapsing buildings.Now he is causing everyone grief with this accident.is racing car not enough adrenaline?Get. Well soon

People like you are very annoying. Everything that's reported that contradict government slightly is deemed as politics. You didn't even know by virtue if owning a blog, the owner of this blog is automatically a reporter, and she must do the job very well without fear or favor. Be warned too fool!

@Ajanaku Oluwakemi So you must know someone personally before you say a prayer for them in a tragedy,see your life,you must comment

Hey what brings about sin in this issue. The man had an accident you are talking about God forgiving sins. Wake up, don't just read meanings to things any how. Leave religion out of the issue at hand.

Based on how Nigerians talk about God and religions we shouldn't have the problems that we have in Nigeria now...

Wish Schumacher a speedy recovery and learn lessons about dangerous sports, or read the news and move on..

I really don't get these white folks all the races and crashes he got involved during his formula 1 era dint put him in coma common skiing is threatening his life. White people are sick if it is not plane diving its mountain diving or one form of extreme sports a black celebrity would not try this hell a black man values his life jay z diddy kanye wont try this shit for were they rather hang out in the strip club and chill for strippers to bounce heir booty for them

After years in the asphalt speeds,tracks and the formula 1...Na just skiing want kill am now...get well soon..
