Michael Schumacher ‘still fighting’ two years after catastrophic brain injury
Michael Schumacher is “still fighting” two years after he suffered serious brain injury following a skiing accident in the French Alps, according to FIA President Jean Todt. Mr Jean Todt said that he “sees Michael very often and Michael is still fighting”.
Mr Schumacher was skiing down an off-piste area between Piste Chamois and Piste Mauduit in December 2013, when he fell and hit his head on a rock. Mr Schumacher suffered catastrophic injuries as a result and was placed in a medically induced coma for six months following the fall. Physicians believe he would have died had he not been wearing a helmet.
Mr Schumacher received round the clock care by a team of 15 experts in a purpose built medical suite and he is believed to be immobile and unable to speak.
