German racing great Michael Schumacher has created quite a stir and this time it is not due to Formula One but an accident he suffered while on a skiing holiday. He happened to injure his head severely and was recently put into an induced coma in order that doctors conduct a second surgery on him. Sabine Kehm, the seven-time champion’s manager, told reporters that though Schumacher spent the New Year in coma there were no significant changes to his condition and that he was ‘stable’.
Initially described as serious but not life-threatening after the accident in the upmarket resort of Meribel, Schumacher's condition rapidly deteriorated and by Sunday evening, doctors said he was in a critical condition and had undergone an emergency operation.
On Tuesday, they said a slight improvement in his condition had allowed them to perform a second nearly two-hour long procedure to remove bleeding in the brain, but warned he was "not out of danger" yet.
Schumi, as he is fondly known the world over, has been put in a medically induced coma to spur recovery, and his temperature has been reduced to around 35 degrees Celsius to reduce swelling. Schumacher's accident has united fans and enthusiasts alike who have been quite generous in their prayers for him. The racer, is still not free from paparazzi either. Earlier today, it was reported by some foreign media that a journalist disguised as a priest tried to enter the cabin where he is resting after surgery.
