Now, a report by BBC has spelled relief for all of us by stating that Michael’s condition has improved slightly after an operation to relieve pressure on his brain.
Doctors have told media that a new scan they took overnight showed signs that Schumacher was “better than yesterday“. However, he was still “not out of danger“, doctors added.
Michael Schumacher suffered severe head injury while skiing at Meribel ski resort on Sunday. These injuries were the affect of his helmeted head hitting a rock. Soon after the accident, Michael was flown to Grenoble, where he underwent an emergency surgery.
Back then, the university hospital in Grenoble had issued a statement which read: “He suffered a severe head injury with coma on arrival, which required immediate neurosurgical intervention. He remains in a critical situation.” This was confirmed by Sabine Kehm, Schumacher’s manager.
A local newspaper said that Schumacher suffered a brain haemorrhage, in spite of temporarily regaining consciousness after the fall.
