As I’m sure you all know, a day before the New Year seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher suffered a severe head injury while skiing in the French Alps. He rang in 2014 in critical condition, but now and after a second surgery, fortunately, he is said to be stable.
The good news was revealed by Michael’s manager Sabine Kehm, who also discussed some of the reports about the accident. Rumor had it that Schumacher was going as fast 60 km/h when he lost control and hit a rock, but Sabine denied that, saying: “Michael was not going very fast. But unfortunately as he took the turn, we assume, he hit the rock and was catapulted upwards and then struck a rock head-first.”
Michael was stable all night, and the more time he spends in stable condition the better. That said, he is still in great danger and is being monitored 24/7.
Speaking to Die Welt newspaper, Kehm also revealed that journalist are banned from Grenoble hospital where Schumacher is recovering, after one of them disguised himself as a priest and tried to enter his room.
