Subject: Seven time F1 champ Michael Schumacher in critical condition after ski accident

Written By: warped on 12/29/13 at 6:14 pm

PARIS — Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher was in critical condition after undergoing brain surgery following a skiing accident in the French Alps on Sunday, doctors said.
The Grenoble University Hospital Center said the retired driver arrived at the clinic in a coma and underwent immediate surgery for a serious head trauma.
It was not clear whether the 44-year-old German was still in a coma but the hospital statement, which was signed by a neurosurgeon, an anesthesiologist and Marc Penaud, the hospital's deputy director, said "he remains in a critical condition."

No roll cages in skiing.  Who would have thought that this sport is perhaps more dangerous than F1.

He hit his head on a rock. But reports say he was wearing a helmet.
I am getting conflicting reports whether he is in a coma or not.
As the news unfolds we shall know more, I am sure.

This is true - but apparently he was skiing off piste with his son.

He has now been operated on and is in a medically induced coma fighting for his life.  They are working to relieve pressure on his brain and have lowered his body temperature to between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius (93.2 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit), as part of the medically induced coma. Doctors won’t predict outcome for F1 champion,  saying they were taking his critical head injury “hour by hour”

Michael Schumacher, the most successful Formula 1 driver in history, remains in a stable but critical condition in hospital, his manager has said.

Sabine Kehm said he was being carefully looked after, and that she would not comment on rumours about his condition.

Schumacher is in a medically induced coma in hospital in Grenoble, after he suffered head injuries in a skiing accident in the French Alps on Sunday.

Doctors said on Tuesday that he had shown signs of improvement.

But they added that he was still "not out of danger".

They will not give any update on Schumacher's condition on Wednesday unless it changes significantly, Ms Kehm said.
