Doctors: Too early to give prognosis on Michael Schumacher
Dec 30, 2013, 5:53 AM EST
During a morning press conference, doctors in Grenoble, France confirmed that seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher has undergone one operation since being admitted to hospital yesterday after sustaining severe head trauma in a skiing accident.
Schumacher remains in a critical condition as well as in an induced coma while doctors attempt to relieve intra-cranial pressure, and they said it was too early to give a prognosis for him, stressing that his situation is one that can change “hour by hour.” They do not currently foresee having to operate a second time on the Formula One legend.
The doctors also noted that had Schumacher not been wearing a helmet during his accident in the French town of Meribel, he would not have survived.
