    Michael Schumacher has reportedly suffered a “serious head injury” while skiing in France.

    I hope it’s false, and if it isn’t false, I hope he’ll make a full recovery. Michael Schumacher was my childhood hero, and I don’t want to see the man leave us for a long, long time.

    @colossal-squid Amen to that. And amen again.

    BBC and Sky are reporting it, so the incident must be legit. What we don’t know at this point is how serious the injuries are, if at all.

    I hope what Lucas says is true and the Champ is in the clear, he has the battle of Sir Stirling Moss!!

    I am sure, and hopeful, Micheal will come through fine and get back to racing cars, not skiing!!!

    Full statement from resort is there (and the translation has been reported on BBC too). Let’s hope the news stays positive.

    @Journeyer That sounds very promising. I hope the news continues to be as good from here on out. Thank you for the link.

    Hearing reports that his condition may have deteriorated and that a statement should be written in the next hour from the hospital.

    I’m hoping these reports are false.

    French sources are saying that he has cerebral hemorrhage and that his condtion is critical.

    After the initial shockwave in the media I had hoped it turned out to be less severe than initially thought, but reports don’t sound good..

    It is official. He is in a coma and his condition is critic.

    German agency SID quoting Schumacher’s management saying he’s “critical” and “fighting for his life”

    I believe the coma is medically-induced, which is commonly done to help stabilise patients in cases like these. Look at Richard Hammond, who went through something similar following his dragster accident. The most important thing is immediate medical attention, with surgery to relieve the pressure on the brain whilst doctors find the source of the bleed. Patients often go into these operations in a serious condition and come out critical because doctors need to be sure they have stopped the bleeding – if they miss even the tiniest of bleeds, it can kill quickly.

    Going to sleep. Just praying that I don’t wake up to the worse news.

    So sad. Seems sick that he survived such a long racing career with just broken legs, now this. GWS Schumi.
