Schumacher condition 'stable' after accident: manager
GRENOBLE, France (AFP) - Formula One legend Michael Schumacher remained “stable” on Wednesday after spending a third night in hospital with severe brain injuries sustained while skiing in the French Alps.
The German racing great entered the new year in an induced coma and a critical condition, with his family at his bedside in the French Alpine city of Grenoble and doctors unsure of his future.
The 44-year-old’s fight for survival after he fell and slammed his head on a rock while off-piste skiing on Sunday has shocked legions of sports stars and fans used to seeing him brave death on the racing tracks.
“At the moment, he is stable,” the seven-time world champion’s manager Sabine Kehm told reporters massed outside the hospital in Grenoble on Wednesday, in a brief update before heading back inside.
