Michael Schumacher suffered a head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps


He received first help from the gendarmes. The emergency services reacted quickly. Schumacher was taken by helicopter to the nearby hospital at Moutiers but was transferred after at the Grenoble hospital.
Meribel is a ski resort in the Tarentaise valley where 53 ski-lifts link 150 km of high-quality pistes. It’s supposed that Schumacher was skiing alone off the piste. The director of the ski station declared that he “does not know the severity of the injury.”
Statistically, snow sports are not considered very dangerous. The overall injury risk combining all the snow sports is about 0.2 to 0,4 percent.
Schumacher, 44 years old, is a married father of two. He obtained 91 total victories and 155 podium finishes in 308 Grand Prix races.
