According to the latest Michael Schumacher update, the racer's manager -- Sabine Kehm -- has addressed rumors that began circulating that the Formula One racer's life is no longer in danger. Kehm told the media on behalf of Schumacher's family that his condition is still "critical but stable," Irish Independent reports Jan. 4.
The report began when racing colleague, Philippe Streiff, said the 45-year-old Schumacher was improving while being in an induced coma following a bad skiing accident in France last week.
Streiff spoke to reporters outside of the hospital where Schumacher is.
“I'm not a doctor, I'm repeating what Gerard Saillant (surgeon and friend of the Schumacher family) told me.
“Gerard Saillant said it is a serious condition but his life is not in danger anymore now, thankfully.”
Another unofficial Michael Schumacher update is out that a camera from the helmet he was wearing while skiing is being examined. A source familiar with the investigation said on Friday that a camera does exist.
Schumacher hit his head hard when he fell skiing on a rocky slope Dec. 29. His helmet in split in half while he was skiing with his 14-year-old son. It is believed that the Schumacher was distracted by his skis not working properly or that pistes on the edges of the patch were not clearly marked. The investigation is ongoing.
