The French Mountain Gendarmerie said Schumacher was wearing a helmet when he had a hard fall at the Meribel resort and that he sustained a "relatively serious" head injury.

The gendarmerie said the 44-year-old's life was not in danger.

In a statement, the Meribel resort said Schumacher was conscious when rescuers arrived on the scene.

Schumacher was initially taken to a local hospital and later transferred to a hospital in the city of Grenoble for a fuller examination and a battery of tests. Those tests were still ongoing, the resort said, adding that orthopedic and trauma surgeon Gerard Saillant had traveled from Paris to the Grenoble hospital to examine Schumacher. German news agency dpa said it was Saillant who operated on Schumacher when he broke his leg during a crash at the Silverstone race course in 1999.

In an email to The Associated Press, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said the retired driver was on a private skiing trip and "fell on his head."

Earlier, I had read what Jurgen posted. Looks like his condition worsened after that was written.

Quote:
Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher was in critical condition after undergoing brain surgery following a skiing accident in the French Alps on Sunday, doctors said.

The Grenoble University Hospital Center said the retired racing driver arrived at the clinic in a coma and underwent immediate surgery for a serious head trauma.

It was not clear whether the 44-year-old Schumacher was still in a coma but the hospital statement, which was signed by a neurosurgeon, an anesthesiologist and Marc Penaud, the hospital's deputy director, said "he remains in a critical condition."
I guess he must have had a lot of bleeding in the brain and they poked a hole in his skull to relieve the pressure. I hope he pulls through and retains full mental function.

Hopes and prayers for his recovery. He was a great driver that provided a great deal of entertainment to me over the years. I remember when he was a young upstart in that Benneton Ford battling Senna in his final season. In a way, I think that Schumacher's rise helped us get over the the loss of Senna.

I'm still not over Arytons death

Prayers for Schumie

I also read that he was wearing a helmet & if he wasn't, he'd be dead.

I hope he's in a top notch hospital, believe me that makes all the difference.

Some improvement today, they are hopeful, but still extremely cautious with saying he is out of the woods.
