Seven-time Formula One champion and popular
race driver Michael Schumacher slipped into coma and continues under intensive
care after suffering a head injury in a fall while skiing off-piste in the
French Alps resort of Meribel a few days back. A piste is a marked ski run or
path down a mountain for snow skiing, snowboarding, or other mountain sports.
Wearing a helmet during the mishap, Schumacher was conscious while being airlifted
to a local hospital in Moutiers.
On December 29, 2013, Schumacher was skiing
with his son when he fell and hit his head on a rock, sustaining a head injury
even though he was wearing a helmet. Schumacher was skiing outside the marked
pistes at that time. He was attended by two ski patrollers and airlifted within
fifteen minutes to a hospital in Moûtiers, and then on to a hospital in
Grenoble specialising in brain.
After winning consecutive championships
with Benetton in 1994/5, Schumacher moved to Ferrari in 1996 and won another
five consecutive drivers' titles with them from 2000 to 2004. Schumacher
retired from Formula One driving in 2006 staying with Ferrari as an advisor. Schumacher
later signed a three-year contract to drive for the new Mercedes team starting
in 2010. As part of the Mercedes team, he raced at the Buddh International
Circuit in Greater Noida during the F1 race.
