Michael Schumacher, who was receiving treatment in a Swiss hospital after suffering a ski accident, has been discharged. The recovery process will now proceed at his residence near Lake Geneva. The seven-time Formula 1 champion was receiving a treatment from a French hospital for nearly six months after suffering a devastating ski accident in the French Alps on December 29, 2013. The 45-year-old German legend hit his head on a rock while skiing off-piste. Schumacher underwent two operations after the accident to remove blood clots before being placed in a medically induced coma. He was later moved to a Swiss rehab for recovery.
Automotive website Autosport reported a statement from Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm which said:
“Henceforth, Michael’s rehabilitation will take place at his home. Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead. We would like extend our gratitude to the entire team at CHUV Lausanne for their thorough and competent work. We ask that the privacy of Michael’s family continue to be respected, and that speculations about his state of health are avoided.”
