Schumacher is in critical condition after suffering severe head trauma in a skiing accident in the French Alps. He falls and hits his head on a rock, said the director of the Meribel resort where Schumacher was skiing. He is presently in a coma at the University Hospital Center of Grenoble and requires immediate brain surgery. Resort director Christophe Gernignon-Lecomte:
We have to wait for a police report. There is an open investigation going on. We insist on the fact that Michael Schumacher was skiing off-piste and his fall is not linked to an avalanche.
