Formula 1 Racing Star in Stable Condition after Sustaining Severe TBI in Skiing Accident

According to CNN, racing driver Michael Schumacher, who suffered severe head injuries in a weekend skiing accident in France, remains in stable condition as of January 1.

Schumacher, the most successful driver in Formula 1 history, suffered severe head trauma after falling while skiing on December 29 in the French Alps. The racing driver was skiing with friends in an area of deep snow when he helped a friend who had fallen. As he went to execute a turn, he struck a rock hidden under the snow; this sent him flying into the air, causing him to fall head first onto another rock, resulting in severe head trauma.

On December 30, doctors carried out a surgical procedure that relieved pressure on Schumacher’s brain. The head of anesthesiology at the University Hospital Center of Grenoble told reporters that the surgery involved the removal of a large hematoma.

“His condition remains stable overnight and this morning,” his manager stated on January 1. “We are still in a critical situation.”

Schumacher remains in an artificially induced coma. Schumacher, who turned 45 on January 3, won a record seven world titles throughout his Formula 1 career.
